If any pianist has been a true regular guest at the Festival, it has surely been Michel Camilo. This year he is performing at the Festival for the 19th time! In 2019 he was awarded the Ruhr Piano Festival Prize to honor his life achievement, his faithfulness to the Festival and, last not least, his thrilling “Jazz for Children” concerts. Camilo has already presented so many facets of his musical personality at the Festival: as a solo jazz pianist, in trio formation, with the WDR Big Band, and in unforgettable encounters with sensitive duo partners including Cuban keyboard giant Chucho Valdés, saxophone stylist Joe Lovano, or the renowned flamenco guitarist Tomatito.
