The French-British pianist/
It’s the perfect context for RIOPY to embark upon a fresh chapter in his career with today’s release of his new album ‘THRIVE’, which is out now.
‘THRIVE’ represents RIOPY’s fi
RIOPY says, “One day, I was playing Satie’s famous Gymnopédie and kept expanding it and from that little seed, THRIVE was born. In taking inspiration from the greatest classical composers, I wanted to show how I interpret and shape their music in my mind. The piano has always helped me find this momentum, this inner strength, and composing for strings has opened up new horizons for me. The reinterpreted melodies on this album are a metaphor to show that everything can evolve.”
In addition, tickets for RIOPY’s London headline concert at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on November 18th have just gone on sale HERE. The show is part of this year’s EFG London Jazz Festival. The performance follows RIOPY’s recent 10-date UKtour, which included a London show at Cadogan Hall. The tour also allowed RIOPY to provide tickets to Restore The Music UK, a charitable organisation that he is an official ambassador for, who seek to fund music education in high socio-economic deprivation schools across the nation. Please see HERE for a full list of all of his upcoming shows.
