Yves Teicher

Born in Liege in Belgium on March 21, 1962, he begins his musical studies at 7 at the Royal Conservatory of Liège. In 1976, he obtains a first prize of music theory. In 1978-79, a first prize of violin. He continues by the superior diploma and obtains a first prize of chamber music in 1981. From 1981 till 1983, he follows the private classes of IVRY GITLIS.
After a period of questioning, retreat and reflection on the violonistic pedagogy, reading of the works of Nietzsche, Rimbaud ... He joins the world and the street music in Brussels, Paris and in the South of France. He meets CHORDA TRIO, finds through them the love and the atmosphere of Django and Grappelli's jazz and his recollections of childhood when he played with his brother, the guitarist Stéphane Martini, from the age of 9.
He likes performing all forms of jazz... Swing, bebop, latin jazz, free jazz... But what stands out especially is at the same time the love of the old style, the tradition of the swing as well as the love of the avant-garde and the common revolutionaries. In other words, the love of the rhythm, the melody and at the same time the arrhythmia, the polyrhythmic and the total dissonance as well as the fusion between poetry and music, contemporary music, gipsy music.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
