16 June – Prominent Tenor Saxophonist of the Age
Francesco Bearzatti, a saxophonist and clarinettist who performs both in solo and ensemble contexts, will take the stage at Akbank Sanat. In France, Bearzatti made a name for himself featuring on Aldo Romano’s Because of Bechet. At the Le Mans European Jazz Festival, he dazzled the audience as a stunning soloist with his style, which is both lyrical and impulsive. Bearzatti has worked with Stomu Takeishi, Enrico Rava, Gianlucca Petrella, Joe Lovano, Randy Brecker and others. He will perform with Tinissima Quartet at 8 p.m.
