Francesco Tristano, piano
Francesco Tristano leads a multifaceted career as a pianist, composer, and DJ, delving into classical and jazz works, as well as techno and experimental electronic music. As a classical artist, he is often associated with Baroque music, particularly compositions by J.S. Bach, as well as Buxtehude, Frescobaldi, and Vivaldi. He has written both classical and jazz works, many in collaboration with pianist/composer Rami Khalifé. After being introduced to club culture while attending college, he recorded piano versions of techno tracks, and soon worked with techno luminaries such as Carl Craig and Moritz von Oswald.
