Delicately and emphatically picking and plucking at their strings, the Théo Ceccaldi Trio immediately catches the attention of the Paris Philharmonic audience while leading us on a journey with their wide range of musical talents. The rhythm and dynamics of their sound is constantly and carefully manipulated. Along the course of this high flying program, they cook up a sizzling, modern take on the musical style of Django Reinhardt, without losing the essence of the “gypsy jazz” legend.
The frantic rhythms, carefully orchestrated melodies, and mesmerizing harmonies place the audience between a contemporary, mysterious world and that of Reinhardt. This performance dares to play on our expectations while satisfying them at the same time. It’s the sort of ingenuity that has become expected of the Théo Ceccaldi Trio, of which there are no other better examples than "Django", from 2019.
