All routes lead to Munich… except that, this time, they depart from Munich and arrive in Verona for Verona Jazz and the passengers are David Gazarov, Mini Schulz, Meinhard “Obi” Jenne and Sandro Roy.
Air Dolomiti – the Lufthansa Group’s Italian airline – is once again giving music wings. On 22 June and with the technical support of Eventi Srl, Verona’s Roman Theatre will stage a performance for true aficionados: the David Gazarov Trio, with David Gazarov (piano), Mini Schulz (bass), Meinhard “Obi” Jenne (drums) and the special participation of Sandro Roy (violin) in the third concert being held for Verona Jazz 2017.
David Gazarov’s story is an unusual one. A pianist of Armenian origin, he first came to the fore in 2011 when he found himself filling in for Jacques Loussier, forced to cancel his performance because of illness. David was an instant success with critics acclaiming his delicacy, strength and virtuosity, music that was not to be understood but simply enjoyed. He immediately proved himself a full-blooded jazz pianist, gifted with great expressive force.
A turning point then came in Stuttgart when Gazarov adopted the term “Bachology” when playing Bach for the first time. Initially remaining true to the original composition, he then let instinct take over and showed how to inject jazz rhythm into classical music.
David Gazarov with Mini Schulz, Meinhard “Obi” Jenne and a young Sandro Roy – a classical and jazz violinist just 20 years of age – will take to the stage of the Roman Theatre to play some Bachology, constantly shifting between the classical world and jazz rhythm.
