FABRICE EULRY
(1962 - )

Fabrice EULRY
     According to many musicians and music-lovers, maybe he is one of the most atonishing and brilliant pianist at the moment in our country. With his irreprochable keyboard technique, capable of a surprising eclestism going from Classical music to virtuoso Modern Jazz, Fabrice EULRY has found an original and personnal style to ally music with showmanship.

     EULRY does not like only one music style; as a result, he has a strong interest in Ragtime music and in Scott JOPLIN's works. Very often are rags proposed in his concert's programme. He can also jumps without warning into a hot stride number or a demoniac novelty rag!
