His prize-winning performance in the 2005 Montreux Jazz Festival’s solo piano competition at the age of just 22 confirmed his maturity as an artist. Not only did he win over the demanding jury (Joe Simple, George Duke), but he also captivated the Swiss public in his double role as composer/interpreter. The classical tradition has marked a good part of his brief career as composer but his arrangements also introduce Son Montuno, Danzón and Cha Cha Cha rhythms and the complex structures of Jazz.
He shows a surprising capacity for taking on, with equal rigour, Villalobos and Ravel concertos, accompanying the singer Teresa García Caturla and the harmonic labyrinth of trumpeter Alexander Brown’s band. He likes to experiment, to test himself in different contexts. Coming from a very musical family, Harold is distinguishing himself as one of the pianists who will be most talked about in the future. Meanwhile, his favourite companion is diversity.
