Lucienne Renaudin Vary, “Instrumental Soloist Revelation” at the 2016 Victoires de la musique classique, breathes new life and freshness into the trumpet, just like Alison Balsom across the Channel. A child of Western France, she studied in Le Mans and then in Paris, and immediately made her mark on both the classical and jazz scenes, equally at ease on the stages of the Folle Journée in Nantes as she was opening for Wynton Marsalis in Marciac. It is no coincidence that she is here not with a pianist but an accordionist – the excellent Félicien Brut, a disciple of Richard Galliano, who made his mark in 2017 with the beautiful project “Le Pari des Bretelles” with the Hermes Quartet. As an appetizer, treat yourself to Lucienne’s third Warner album, “Piazzolla Stories”.
