Isfar Sarabski Trio in Paris

The Isfar Sarabski Trio made a triumphant return to Paris on 16 May 2014 as a part of the famous Festival Jazz à Saint-Germain-des-Prés Paris, performing before a wildly appreciative audience of over 300. Now in its 14th edition, the festival is one of the staple fixtures of the Parisian jazz calendar, and audiences comprise critics, musicians and fans alike. Performing a rich blend of music, most of which were Isfar’s own compositions, this concert was supported by TEAS. It took place at the Maison des Cultures du Monde cultural centre, which focuses on cultural exchange and the maintenance of cultural diversity.

The Trio comprised Isfar Sarabski (piano), Makar Novikov (bass) and Alexander Mashin (drums). This video features highlights of the concert and reflections from Frédéric Charbaut, Co-Founder and Artistic Director of the Festival and Marion Paoli, Chief Editor, Couleurs Jazz Magazine.
