About Florian Favre Trio
Founded in 2010 under the driving force of the Swiss pianist Florian Favre, this trio quickly received notable attention due to the intensity emanating from its performances. “We have rarely seen so many gestures and such communicative pleasure around on stage” (F.B.). After two albums which received noteworthy praise in the international press, the trio is on Tour from November 2017 on to present the pieces of their brand new album released under the prestigious Berlin record label, Traumton.

Written by the trio’s leader, the compositions are not only refined, intense, and imprinted with a mastered minimalism, they demonstrate a will to transverse stylistic barriers. The musicality and agility of his talented accomplices, Manu Hagmann (b) and Arthur Alard (dr), allow the trio to exploit a rich palette of nuances which offers the opportunity for remarkable interactions.

About Florian Favre
Born in 1986 in Fribourg, Florian Favre has now completed his Masters degree in Composition & Theory with DJANGO BATES and Dieter Amman at the High School of Arts in Bern (HKB).

After a brief experience in the classical world of piano, he began to study jazz at the Conservatory of Fribourg with Richard Pizzorno. He received his Certificate in 2007, with a special commendation from the jury. He entered the Swiss Jazz School the same year and had the opportunity to study with Andy Scherrer, Bert Joris, Frank Sikora, Patrice Moret, William Evans, Dejan Terzic, Colin Vallon, Andreas Scherrer, and Thierry Lang. In 2010 he was selected to be part of the DKSJ All Star project with Pierre Audétat. That same year he received his Bachelor of Arts and the Friedelwald grant.
