About Trio Cavalcade: A World Music Concert!
It was in 2011 that Mathias Duplessy, a self-taught musician who has been composing on his guitar since the age of 6, met classical guitarist Jérémy Jouve, who very quickly became the ambassador of his pieces for guitar, now played by many of the greatest international soloists. The idea of the Trio Cavalcade was born after the recording of Cavalcade in which Jérémy Jouve played all the works for classical guitar by Mathias Duplessy. The two guitarists then began to play together to weave a bridge between classical music and world music, exploring musical ideas with many instrumental variations. Here we offer a cosmopolitan concert where solos, duos and trios will follow one another, always in a festive spirit: Jérémy Jouve on guitar and Amit Kavthekar on tabla, Mathias Duplessy, sometimes on guitar, vocals, and perhaps flute, create exciting and dynamic music. The elegance and virtuosity of Jérémy Jouve’s classical playing feeds the strength of Mathias Duplessy’s flamenco playing and the rhythmic energy of Amit Kavthekar. Giving pride of place to improvisation, Mathias Duplessy’s pieces are nourished by music from Spain, Brazil, India and by composers such as Ravel and Gismonti.
