Sabam for Culture Prize (= prize for the best live interpretation of ‘Eternal July‘ (composed by Piotr Matusik): Florian Favre Trio
From the jury report: “This band has a very high level of proficiency and professionalism.
There was a great build up and contour of the set, ranging from very delicate to highly intense moments, within the jazz tradition, but always fresh and surprising, with never a dull moment. With great coherence and interplay between the band members, always finding a balance between seriousness and apparent pleasure, meanwhile connecting very well with the audience and therefor creating a great atmosphere.”
Congratulations! The Florian Favre Trio is amongst the finalists of B-Jazz International Contest
They will play the finals of B-Jazz 2016 on friday 18th and saturday 19th of March at OPEK (Leuven, Belgium).
