Richard Galliano

| France

Richard Galliano has succeeded, through his musical emphasis on melody, rhythm, and harmony, in imposing his instrument in musical contexts that previously ignored it jazz festivals (Marciac, Vienne, Montréal, etc.) and classical concert halls (Academia Santa-Cecilia in Rome, the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris, Milan' s la Scala etc.).He was born in Cannes on December 12, 1950. He studied piano and accordion with his father, Lucien Galliano, before pursuing his musical studies at the Nice Conservatory, presided at that time by organist Pierre Cochereau. He studied counterpoint, harmony, and trombone, graduating with a 1er Prix d' Excellence in 1969. In parallel with this musical apprenticeship he took part in international accordion competitions. Playing J.S. Bach, Tchaikovsky, Ravel and Gershwin, he won first prize in the accordion "World Cup" two years in a row (1966, Valence, Spain and 1967, Calais, France) as well as the President's Prize in 1968 (under President Charles de Gaulle).

Between 1980 and 2003 Richard Galliano recorded several Albums and shared the stage with great musicians in concerts all over the world (Paris, New York, Moscow, London, Buenos Aires, Montréal, San Francisco, Istanbul, etc.). He played with: Chet Baker, Ron Carter, Joe Zawinul, Al Foster, Pierre Michelot, Philip Catherine, Charlie Haden, Toots Thielemans, Bobby Mc Ferrin, Larry Grenadier, Scott Colley, Jan Garbarek, Paquito di Rivera, Michel Petrucciani, Gilberto Gil, Richard Bona, Manu Katche, Paolo Fresu and many others.
