Keith Hall, Marian Petrescu Trio: Interview After the Sibiu Jazz Festival


Sign in to view read count
"Piano trio music, of the kind that we perform anyway, is a very complex musical journey and as you say subtle, like the wings of a butterfly. We love to use dynamics and as you will remember, there are also places in the arrangements where we play quite powerfully. If there is a noisy audience, it nearly always works to play quieter not louder to gain their attention. This is a proven fact and has been used by many top musicians e.g. Ray Brown, Jeff Hamilton and many others. I do feel that there should always be room for serenity in life and it is even more important in today's noisy and busy world to find these oasis of calm. It is good for the physical and spiritual sides of human nature and makes people less aggressive."

The Marian Petrescu Trio has surprised the Sibiu Jazz Festival with a great performance. Keith Hall, the trio's drummer, shares some of his thoughts about Sibiu, the Sibiu festival, and the fate of jazz music: Keith Hall Interview.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
