Live at the Museum is the thrilling sophomore venture from adventurous pianist-composer Mathis Picard. Recorded in January 2019 at the National Jazz Museum in Harlem, this solo piano work is a sonic journey through which the French-Malagasy artist explores the museum of his own life in music, honoring and spotlighting his roots in jazz, classical, and electronic music. Through Picard's own refined curatorial lens, Live at the Museum honors the works of the great classical and jazz composers that were influential to Picard's personal musical journey with daring and evocative interpretations of classic pieces, and an impressive array of original compositions. Both outwardly expressive and inwardly introspective, Live at the Museum cements Picard's stature as a truly incomparable innovator of his generation.
Live at the Museum comes as Picard is fresh off the heels from his critically-acclaimed genre-bending debut EP World Unity (Outside in Music). Long awaited, Picard finally presents his first solo piano outing allowing his unbridled invention to be heard in a pared-down context - a celebration of his inimitable sound.
