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.
