Pianist Jacques Loussier has been creating jazz trio arrangements of classical works by Bach, Handel, Debussy, and others for almost four decades, with results that vary in success according to a fairly consistent pattern: the closer his source material gets to the Baroque period, the more successfully it blends with his decorous chamber jazz style. The further into the 19th century he gets, the more soggy and uninspired that fusion becomes. A comparison between, say, his charming and sprightly settings of Handel's Water Music and this rather forced and mopey-sounding attempt at a jazz arrangement of the Allegretto section from Beethoven's Symphony No. 7 will demonstrate the point. When the sparkling swing of his bop-inflected piano style is set against the foursquare rhythms of Handel's music, the result is greater than the sum of its parts; the sweet melodic simplicity of Handel's compositions is brought out and accentuated by the driving swing of the rhythm section, and Loussier's improvisational variations bring out aspects of those melodies that you might have missed otherwise. But Beethoven's music relies, in part, on his own rhythmic conception for its power, and the grandiose emotion of his symphonic construct is lost in a piano-trio format. Note in particular the sludgy results when Loussier and his crew tackle the third variation in this program; instead of being freed from rhythmic bondage, this music feels like it was forced into a straitjacket. Loussier is right to take chances with his music, and he should be praised for daring to mess with the masters in this way. But it should come as no surprise that some of his experiments are more successful than others. ~ Rick Anderson

Jacques Loussier ==>将古典音乐融合爵士优雅的老师
12/10 由於好朋友的分享,在成大自强校区有 Jacques Loussier 三人团体的表演,以爵士乐来说,我很少接触.但是听他们三人的演奏(露天演奏),对於一个人的自己,倒是还蛮适合的,在古典乐的巴哈,透过Jacques Loussier 逗趣的即兴,真的还让人觉得蛮讚的,当你一个人专心的阅读,或做著自己的大小事时,他的音乐,真的很适合一个人独处的时候倾听,,很多人都问我,啊妳怎么会这么认为?
其实在表演开始时,我有很仔细的看著Jacques Loussier 在演奏时的神韵,虽然一旁的人有人说,他看起来很老了,好像是音符忘记了,但是,大家知道吗?其实,一个人即使很擅长隐藏心事,或者内心思绪的变化,他的眼睛可是无法装饰的,在他若有所思的凝眸中,更能让我感受到他内心的触动!虽然在他表演的时刻,他的言语简短,但音乐即使是没有字句,它就会在你心灵专注时被发现,就像个顽皮的小朋友,变身成另一个小精灵,让您找到另一种美丽的人生样貌! 虽然他满头白髮,但是却能够透过他的眼睛,串联成心灵的音符,还好今天成大并没有下雨,淡淡的草香以及微微的冬夜晚风,真的是一个沈淀心灵的好所在啊!

French musical savant Jacques Loussier boasts an illustrious background that includes admittance to the prestigious Parisian Conservatoire National de Musique while still a teenager. His interests in rock -- counting Pink Floyd's The Wall and the Lords of the New Church's 1984 Method to Our Madness -- as well as jazz have prevented the artist from being categorized by style or genre. Released in 2003, Allegretto from Symphony No. 7, Theme and Variations features pianist Loussier in a trifecta alongside bassist Ben Dunoyer de Segonzac and drummer André Arpino interpreting ten variations on the Allegretto portion of Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No. 7. For those unfamiliar, the term Allegretto (translated as "rather fast") refers to the composition's tempo, encompassing a speed of less than 120 but exceeding 108 measures per minute. As he had done in prior outings that incorporated the respective works of Bach, Debussy, and Handel, among others, Loussier approaches the composition with an ear toward the third stream, blending classical pieces to a decidedly jazz orientation. For purists of either, there will inevitably be discrepancies in the trio's elucidations and reinventions. However, the less critical listener will find much to enjoy, gaining a better understanding if not appreciation for both in the process. When removed from the traditional context, Symphony No. 7's inherent pacing and overall sentiment are inextricably transformed. This is not only in essence the purpose of the fusion, but also results in the melodies being taken to another level. As should be anticipated, several of the adaptations (which are delineated numerically: "Variation One," "Variation Two," etc.) are pulled off with alternate degrees of success. Some, like the first, fourth, seventh, and ninth variations in particular, are notably liberated and swing with authority. Conversely, the third and fifth arguably seem fettered and uncertain. That said, seasoned enthusiasts as well as the nominally curious are encouraged to sample and personalize their own preferences regarding these bold and (at the very least) adventurous excursions. ~Allmusic
