We want Jazz

The trumpet is undoubtedly one of the most popular instruments! Although used in almost all styles of music, it is without question jazz that, thanks to its illustrious ambassadors such as Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis, will take it up to the Pantheon of music.

Mons was a real hotbed of fanfares and harmonies. Out of the many trumpeters of their generation, five professional musicians are included in this exhibition: Albert Langue, Richard Rousselet, Gino Lattuca, Jean-Paul Estiévenart and Adrien Volant. Sixty-six years separate the first from the last, and yet their world views and their music seem to converge in many respects.

Exhibition open from 16 February to 14 April 2013
