Danilo Pérez


John Patitucci


Terri Lyne Carrington


Each in their own way, Danilo Pérez, John Patitucci and Terri Lyne Carrington have all been deeply influenced by the work and personality of legendary saxophonist Wayne Shorter. The three Grammy-award winning musicians come together at the Pierre Boulez Saal as “Children of the Light” to pay tribute to their friend and mentor. The concert places Shorter’s own works next to new pieces inspired by his unique spirit, as Pérez notes: “You say ‘Thank you’ to a great man like Wayne not by imitating what he does but by playing off the language he created.”

This is a trio that is carrying the torch of the lessons we learned from Wayne.

He told us to write and play music the way we want the world to be like. With our compositions and playing we would want to bring light and hope to the world and express the idea of ‘going beyond the music.’
