Two world jazz stars come to Winnipeg

An amazing event will occur in the cultural life of city - On Saturday, November 10, Leonid Ptashka and Yaacov Mayman will give a jazz concert for the first time in Winnipeg.

Both musicians have earned their reputation as virtuosos and excellent improvisers, touring around the world and constantly honing their skills.

Traveling to different countries, they raise the prestige of Israel, and make jazz more popular around the world. In addition, they bring peace and beauty, erasing boundaries and speaking the language of music. The organizers of the concert (Regina Teplitsky & Erica’s Entertainment) are sure that there are a lot of people in Winnipeg who can truly appreciate their music and stay really delighted after the concert.

Ptashka was born in Baku, he studied in Moscow, and then moved to Israel. His name is included in the list of 100 best jazz musicians of the XX century. He teaches at the Tel Aviv Conservatory and gives over 200 concerts a year. Ptashka laughs that judging by his last name, he was definitely destined to connect his life to music. Despite the fact that his parents were quite young when he was born and he knew all his grandparents, Ptashka does not know the origin of his last name. He also became the first musician in his family.

He has a nickname on the Internet - piano destroyer. All people understand that this is just a joke and he has never destroyed any pianos. He got this nickname for his virtuoso playing. It seems that thanks to him the piano sounds completely in a new way, and you can hear those sounds which usually the piano is not capable of.

Yaacov Mayman has the status Gold Saxophone of New York. This amazing saxophonist has won the hearts of many Americans and Europeans and now he can win the hearts of the people living in Winnipeg.

City residents will experience the atmosphere of the incredible music. Two musicians will fill the program with stunning musical works and humour. Viewers can also get a few surprises from the showmen!
