The versatile pianist, improviser and composer Marco Mezquida takes us on an oneiric journey throughout Maurice Ravel’s musical and personal imagery. A dream about the vitality of his legacy and the eclecticism of the music he was seduced by: from the French classics to the romantic virtuosos; from the experimentation with popular music to the influences of his contemporaries and the effervescence of jazz.
Along with percussionist Aleix Tobias and cellist Martín Meléndez, Marco Mezquida delivers a personal, unique approach to Ravel’s genius: he permeates it with groove, expands it through improvisation, and breathes textures of contemporary music into it.
