Solo piano improvisation has been central to Tatge’s interests since the very beginning.

He works on instant composition as well as on the interpretation of standards or of original pieces specifically conceived for this medium, sometimes bringing these approaches together in the same performance.

Tatge has held solo concerts at many venues, including Wesleyan University, Smalls Jazz Club, Imprudences Festival in Paris, and for the Musicus Concentus Piano Hour series in Florence (see live videos below).
