If musical genious is somewhere between divine passion and sublimited madness, there certainly is some genious in the music of Dimitri Naïditch. Because everything goes beyond standards with this Ukainian musician : a meteoric career of classical pianist (4 First Prizes of the Conservatory of Moscow and numérous international awards), a stunning technique, a rare melodic sensitivity, a devastating charisma.
But the most impressive part of Dimitri Naïditch, is to be both an exceptionnal classical concert pianist and a genuine jazz musician, partner of numerous notorious jazzmen such as Rick Margitza, Didier Lockwood, Richard Galliano, Mario Stantchev, Stefano Di Battista, Andy Shepard, etc.
From this dual identity, classical and jazz, Dimitri Naïditch has developed a remarquable ability to carve out his own path somewhere between the interpretation of the classical themes and the jubilant freedom of improvisation. An exercice he brings at the highest level of excellence in his jazz reinterpretation of the great classical masters: Mozart, Bach, Tchaïkovski, as invited by Jean-François Zygel to perform in the French television programme « La Boîte à Musique » and the concerts at Le Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris.
More than a sheer jazz-inspired interpretation of the great masters, Dimitri Naïditch invites us to a passionate, deep and dizzying journey, looking into the classical composers from an unpreceeded, inspired and invigorating angle that magnificently demonstrates their impertinent modernity.
