Did Anton Bruckner influence jazz, for example with the so-called Bruckner Rhythm, a constant juxtaposition and/or contrasting of duplets and triplets? Are the musical motifs and themes of the master organ improviser suitable as a basis for jazz improvisations? Are Bruckner's works a source of inspiration for contemporary jazz? The French pianist and composer Thomas Enhco is just the man to search for Bruckner's Blue Notes, a traveller between the worlds, who as a jazz musician has been creating a sensation since he was very young, for example when he appeared at the festival Jazz à Juan at ten years old and in 2006, aged 18, recorded on his début album in a crossover duo with the percussionist Vassilena Serafimova music from Bach and Mozart as well as Romantic and contemporary pieces. He also writes film scores, plays concertos in symphony concerts from Bach, Mozart and Beethoven up to Gershwin, Ravel and Adams and has composed more than a hundred works for the most varied of instrumental combinations. A universal musician with a great love of Bruckner who meets him - with the greatest respect - as an equal, in order to strike sparks of jazz from his monumental scores.
