Paulette Verlée, the alter ego of Veerle Pollet (°Brussels), learned to play the piano at a very young age with the works of Bach and Schumann. For her first album, released last in 2022, it was Erik Satie who formed the starting point. For the next album 'Les Barricades Mystérieuses' the inspiration came from François Couperin and for the last one ‘Reworks’, she stayed closer to home. Paulette, who does not like to be pigeonholed, went looking for Belgian present-day pop songs to put her own spin on them. Six well-known hits were transformed into concise piano works. Tamino, Angèle, Bazart, Oscar And The Wolf and Selah Sue passed in review. The piano metamorphosis of a techno song by the world's best female DJ Charlotte de Witte was the icing on the cake. From melody to beats, everything you hear comes from the same instrument: the piano.
On stage, the piano is accompanied by subtle electronic touches and well thought-out cello parts performed by Maaike Organe, while well-chosen images are projected live behind them on a beautiful setting.
