Jazz Meets Classic
Afra Kane, winner of the Montreux Jazz Talent Award 2019 has a strong classical background but has always been drawn to jazz, the techniques of which she has studied. Valentina Kaufman is a young virtuoso pianist supported by the Lang Lang Foundation who would like to try her hand at improvisation. Together, throughout the spring, they have been experimenting with a language linking these two styles. In residence in Montreux, they will prepare and present a repertoire ranging from classical to jazz for four hands.
