Looking through upcoming concerts in Marciac, I see a November event with a jazz concerto by Baptiste Trotignon.

Igor Stravinsky : Dumbarton Oaks
Joseph Haydn : Symphony No. 85 "The Queen"
Baptiste Trotignon : Different spaces, piano concerto - Creation

Orchestre National Bordeaux Aquitaine, Jonathan Darlington
Nicholas Angelich , piano

It all started with an encounter between jazz pianist Baptiste Trotignon and classical pianist Nicholas Angelich. After having mixed their (great) talent time for a concert, the new friends decided to go further. Thus was born "Different spaces", resolutely African-American concerto for piano and symphony orchestra. The Orchestre National Bordeaux Aquitaine will be happy to serve this work full of audacity to which Chief Jonathan Darlington decided to combine a Haydn symphony and a chamber concerto with Stravinsky
