LetterOne Rising Stars Jazz Award – Yessai Karapetian
LETTERONE RISING STARS JAZZ AWARD is a competition that proclaims a winner and promotes their careers in the difficult world of show business, where talent often isn’t enough. Among the initiatives of this institution, there’s the opportunity to make winners perform in some of the leading American and European festivals. Among these, Umbria Jazz presents the winners of the last three years:
- Yessai Karapetian, an Armenian pianist who lives in Paris, with his quintet;
- Danish pianist Katherine Windfield in a sextet;
- Israeli trumpeter Itamar Borochov, in a quartet.
They all perform at the night venue in via della Viola.
