The National Jazz Orchestra of France is performing in Bucharest next week


After performances at the Sibiu Jazz Festival and the Ploiești Jazz Festival at the end of October, the Orchester National de Jazz de France (Orchestre National de Jazz de France) will also make a stopover at the Bragadiru Palace in Bucharest on November 1.

The French jazz ensemble will present its new album, Rituals, during the concert in the Romanian capital.

“Under the baton of conductor Frédéric Maurin, Rituals – a fascinating collective work with the air of an oratorio, describes the rituals that mark the cycle of days, seasons, civilizations, our lives, in a fairy tale setting, a palace with the air of the interwar period in the heart of Bucharest,” organizers said.

Tickets for the show in Bucharest can be purchased online here.

The Orchester National de Jazz de France has hosted nearly 200 soloists, given concerts on all continents, produced 31 albums and collaborated with many international artists. It is the only national orchestra whose conductor changes every five years.

The presence of the National Jazz Orchestra in Romania is part of “Musiques Créatives de France”, an initiative of the French Institute which brings the most diverse sounds to the Romanian public in a refreshing walk between jazz, music electronic, vegetal pop, jazz, world music or baroque music.
