Coming from classical music, Storione began playing at age 4. Once in the world of jazz, he earned his bachelor’s degree at the Berklee Music School and was a finalist in the prestigious piano competition of the Montreaux Jazz Festival. He studied with musicians like Larry Grenadier, who said of him: “Yuri has been one of my favorite students at the the Jazz Campus in Basel. It’s been my extreme pleasure to watch him the last couple of years mature into a very fine piano player. Yuri has all the things going for him to make him a player of great distinction in the near future. I look forward to witnessing his continuing growth as a musician.”
In this project, Storione offers a repertoire of original compositions, reflecting various aspects of current jazz, aimed at highlighting the individual virtues and versatility of the accompanying musicians.

To my person: My name is Kiki Trenew. I am practicing Yoga since more than 17 years – nearly every day – and it changed my life. To understand Yoga you have to practice regular. With increasing practice your power, confidence & well-being will grow slowly. Your view will go to the inside and this will make a change in your life. Everybody can practice my Yoga whatever age or physical condition. The adaption of the Yoga postures to every single student is very important for me as we all have different bodies. I mix Ayur Yoga, Yin Yoga & Vinyasa Flow Yoga – the basic you will find in Hatha Yoga. Every class can be different as i always work in needs of my students. Come along and try out and learn to boost & stretch in a healthy way.
Wishing you all a wonderful week, light & love Kiki
