Pianists Charles Loos and Eric Legnini will play together for the first time on the stage of the Theatre 140 in a surprising concert during which personal repertoires will meet jazz standards.
It is almost a father-and-son tale that unites these two Belgian jazzmen. In 1984, Charles Loos, then a professor at the Brussels Conservatory, met Eric Legnini, then a young 14-year-old intern in Libramont. The teacher was stunned by the student's talent. Years later, Legnini succeeded Loos, who was continuing his international career, at the Conservatory position. The two pianists admire each other and have been following each other from a distance for almost 30 years without ever playing together. At an evening to celebrate the 40 years of the Igloo label in Mons the two pianists met behind the scenes and floated the idea of this unique tandem. The Igloo label then proposed to support the project by organising this "première" at Theatre 140.
