Luxembourg pianist Francesco Tristano is nothing if not versatile. His classical repertoire is renowned--he was nominated for the Carnegie Hall Rising Star series--but he has also played jazz with vibraphonist Pascal Schumacher and was a founder of acclaimed experimental trio Aufgang with fellow pianist Rami Khalifé and drummer Aymeric Westrich.

His latest project is a duo with the talented German-Japanese pianist Alice Sara Ott, who records for the prestigious Deutsche Gramaphon label. Ott is a rising star of the classical piano circuit, with The Guardian saying of her appearance with the London Symphony Orchestra that she “gave the kind of gawp-inducing bravura performance of which legends are made.”

Together Tristano and Ott are a dynamic, fun and sexy duo. Their debt album and tour is titled Scandale and the programme features Ravel’s Boléro and La Valse, Debussy’s Nocturnes N° 1 & N° 2  (arranged by Ravel) and Stravinsky’s own arrangement of his Rites of Spring, as well as Tristano’s own composition a soft shell groove.
