SUNDAY AUGUST 18
Duo b! Z'art, 4 hands at the piano
Geoffrey BAPTISTE
André ROE
"Good kisses from Russia"
- In the Steppes of Central Asia of BORODINE
- Nutcracker from TCHAIKOVSKY
- 3 easy pieces for piano for 4 hands from STRAVINSKY
- Suite opus 11 by RACHMANINOV
Playing the piano with 4 hands, we use 20 fingers of 2 musicians sharing the 88 keys of a piano. It's a very special show, where hands mingle on the keyboard with virtuosity. This set provides a very unique repertoire. Sometimes the instrument can be intimate, like salon music, sometimes symphonic imitating the orchestra. In addition, we find ourselves facing the piano, communicating together, inviting the public to share this special moment. Sincerity, energy and love of music are at the center of our ongoing research.
Geoffrey baptiste is, since 2006, pianist and official celesta of the Roayl Philharmonic Orchestra of Liège, in which he has given more than 100 concerts. He also collaborates with the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra and the Zuidnederland Philharmonic. In January 2010, he played Fantaisie on Polish tunes by F. Chopin, accompanied by the Liège Philharmonic Orchestra under the direction of François-Xavier Roth.
Of Belgian and British origin, André Roé is a graduate of the Royal Conservatories of Liège and Brussels (class of E. Moguilevsky), of the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel and of the Paris Normal School of Music "Alfred Cortot" (class of S. Markarov). He has won numerous competitions for young talents in Belgium, France and Italy and notably obtained in 2006 the Pelemans Prize awarded by the Union of Belgian Composers for its significant contribution to the dissemination of the national directory.

MONDAY AUGUST 19
MNM Trio, 6 hands at the piano
Myriam AYARI
Nicolas COLINET
Matthieu NORMAND
Gathered by the desire to explore the piano in a new light, it was in 2012 that Myriam Ayari, Nicolas Collinet and Matthieu Normand founded the trio of 6-hand pianists "MNM". Played entirely with 6 hands on a piano and supported by a smiling staging, their concert-shows exploit both a little-known repertoire of composed pieces for this very rare formation, but also a palette of transcriptions, sometimes arranged by the trio. With the desire to reinvent the piano in “pocket orchestra”, their choices are focused on symphonic music, but also opera. MNM Trio also offers rare pieces from the contemporary repertoire and is happy to make a getaway to Jazz or Tango. Winner of the Horlait-Dapsens Prize and the 2018 music octave, the ensemble performs regularly in Belgium (Festival de la ville de Bruxelles, Festival de Wallonie, Théâtre Marni, Salle Flagey, Festival Propulse, Festival Musiq'3…) and abroad (France, Germany, Thailand, Saudi Arabia, Congo, Gabon ..).

The CINÉ-TRIO is first of all the fruit of a friendship between three musicians who graduated the same year from the National Conservatory of Music and Dance of Paris: Philippe Barbey-Lallia, Cyril Baleton and Timothée Oudinot. Their shared passion for film music prompted them to create this ensemble while they were still students. Since then, the CINÉ-TRIO has in its repertoire nearly 350 new arrangements of themes among the most famous compositions for cinema, ranging from films from the thirties to the present day.
