I am not done with Chilly Gonzales yet.

In this video, the full improvisational piano battle versus Jean-François Zygel.

Top musicianship, as expectable.

Chilly Gonzales' full Solo Piano concert at the 2005 Piano en Valois Festival, directed by Éric Michaud and aired on Mezzo.

Below you may find the description on their website.

En tant que multi instrumentiste virtuose, crooner en smoking rose ou rappeur, excellant dans le hip-hop dadaïste comme dans l’éléctro branché, il propose avec piano vision une rencontre un peu fleur bleue, hyper mélodique, volontairement simple mais d’une sincérité absolue. Extravagant hier, il se révèle aujourd’hui un remarquable pianiste tous azimuts faisant de ce show un spectacle inclassable. Piano vision, c’est l’émergence d’une personnalité multiple, d’une énergie approchant folie et création.

Which I attempted to translate.

As a virtuosic multi-instrumentalist, a crooner in pink tuxedo or a rapper, excellent in dadaistic hip-hop like in trendy electro, he proposes with piano vision a rather sentimental, hyper melodic encounter, voluntarily simple but of absolute sincerity.
Once extravagant, he reveals himself today a remarkable pianist making this a show unclassifiable in every way. Piano vision is the emmergence of a multiple personality, an energy nearing madness and creativity.

His best selling album so far was ironically a set of wonderfully executed minimalist classical compositions, which have been compared to Erik Satie's, whose live performance I will be posting later.
