Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center presents Ramón Valle, the Cuban powerhouse pianist, in a unique live concert at Stavros Niarchos Hall on Friday 30 August.
One of the world’s greatest pianists, multi-awarded Ramón Valle has performed in major venues and international jazz festivals. Whether in a band or as a trio leader, his charismatic stage presence is commanding and his music intoxicating. Prominent Cuban pianist Chucho Valdes declared him, “The greatest talent among our young pianists.”
Ramón Valle has released 13 albums; his latest, The Time Is Now, is perhaps his most personal to date, as he worked with his long-time friend and associate, Roy Hargrove. With this new recording, Ramon Valle takes on the role of musical time traveler, as he experiences and interprets, from an up close and personal vantage, the music that is happening today.
The event is realized with the support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. Alongside the core program of free-admission events, which continue to be provided free of charge thanks to an exclusive grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center organizes a series of events for which a low admission fee applies. This aims to enable the SNFCC SA to diversify its income sources while ensuring its long-term financial robustness.
