Eric Zinman

At the forefront of creative music for more than 20 years, Eric Zinman's piano playing has been described by Bob Rusch as a "fleet and appealing touch," rooted in the language of his teachers Bill Dixon, Cecil Taylor, Paul Bley, Lowell Davidson and many others. His style is marked by his relation to the trap set drums, varying densities of sound masses and melodies spanning the whole keyboard with a surprising variety of touches, dynamics, phrasing, silence and an arresting balance between the pedaled and unpedaled sounds.

Eric Zinman has played with Craig Schildhauer, Raqib Hassan, Toshi Makihara, Sabir Mateen, Marco Eneidi, Lisle Ellis, Peter Valsamis, Tatsuya Nakatani, Glynis Lomon and Blaise Siwula, Ernst-Ludwig Petrowsky, Jan Roder, Thomas Rehnert, Mario Rechtern, Benjamin Duboc, Didier Lasserre, John Voigt and Laurence Cook. Mr Zinman has also composed music for dance and theatre using verbal directives as well as graphic scores.

Richard Poole

After four decades in the music business, Richard has played in every type of ensemble, in all environments, offering all styles of music in the U.S., Canada and abroad. Currently, Richard is performing in the U.S. and France, where he teaches and plays at the Chateau D’Ancy-le-Franc in August every year.
