POP Montreal presents: Chilly Gonzales
After welcoming artists for two weeks for his “Gonzervatory” workshop in Koln, Chilly Gonzales is back on the road and will be in Montreal on Monday, January 13 and Tuesday, January 14, 2020, at the Théâtre Saint-Denis.
Chilly Gonzales, Grammy-winning Canadian pianist and entertainer
currently living in Europe, is known as much for the intimate piano touch
of best-selling albums Solo Piano I and Solo Piano II as for
his showmanship and composition for award-winning stars. Gonzo, as he is
known to close collaborators, aims to be a man of his time, approaching
the piano with classical and jazz training but with the attitude of a rapper.
Chilly Gonzales holds the Guinness world record for the longest
solo concert at over 27 hours. He performs and writes songs with Jarvis
Cocker, Feist and Drake, among others. With Never Stop, Chilly
Gonzales composed a global hit for the inaugural Apple iPad 2 campaign. In
2014 he won a Grammy for his collaboration on Daft Punk’s Best Album of
the Year and composed the best-selling book of easy piano pieces Re-Introduction
Etudes. With his last album Chambers, Chilly Gonzales devoted himself to
finding a modern take on chamber music.
2019 and 2020 sees
the return of Chilly Gonzales to the stage with an intimate hour of pieces from
the Solo Piano album cycle, after which he is joined by Stella Le Page on
cello and Joe Flory on drums to perform hits and hidden surprises from the
rest of his repertoire, interspersed with his unique playful explanations about
how music works.
