Bruno Angelini - Open Land (LA BUISSONNE 2018)

Bruno Angelini is an atypical pianist, endowed with a very personal world as composer and pianist. He is searching his notes as "others sieve the water, looking for gold."

With the Open Land Quartet, he released a first album "Instant Sharings",  a serene and gentle music of great intensity, which takes the time to blossom and grow in tension.

The depth of Claude Tchamitchian's double bass, Regis Huby's lyricism (at both acoustic and electric violins) and the freedom and creativity of percussionist Edward Perraud all participate in a quest of intense beauty that was both plebiscited by the public and well greeted by the press.

« It's a music that only jazz musicians can manage to create. Enchanting.» Franck Bergerot for Jazzmag

« A very nice concert that makes up hope for many others» Xavier Prévost for Jazzmag Live

Bruno Angelini's latest compositions were tailor-made for this chamber group in order to explore new ways of communicating through Music. This new album will surely constitute an intense continuation for "Instant Sharings".
