Although his previous albums were essentially for piano,
Arômes de jazz (Jazz Aromas) consists of an orchestral
suite of nine original compositions that blend in tango,
bossa-nova and other modern rhythms.

“I got the idea a few years ago, when I discovered Danzón
No 2, composed for symphony orchestra, by Mexican
composer, Arturo Marquez,’ explained Mr. Pépin. “The
original take on classical music was a revelation. Arômes de
jazz similarly builds on the classical concepts, but blends in
modern rhythms, harmonies and sounds.”

The recording was a long-distance collaboration with the
Budapest Scoring Orchestra, known for its quality work,
notably in film.
