READY for THE Concert?

Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Ceaikovski and many many others: great names, great music, twisted minds moving fingers faster and faster on simple keyboards of simple boxes, but wonderfully accorded.

Piano concerts making tours around our small planet for eternity. Concert goers leave wanting to find a piano teacher at or someone local.

Piano? A magical box from which lovely songs like Le Vent, Le Cri (Ennio Morricone), Love Story (Richard Clayderman) arise for more than 400 years and others – just waiting to be born. The history credited the modern piano to someone called Bartolomeo Cristofori of Padua, Italy, an employee of Ferdinando de’ Medici as Keeper of the Instruments. This means… hundreds and hundreds of years ago, in a world of fairy tales.

The story of piano music begins a long time ago, with refined elegance…

And I must admit that I got this idea from Lady Gaga and her magically and strangely shaped pianos. Even if sometimes she freaks me out and even if I think her talent is somewhat put back by the show, it’s still worth to remind her piano extravaganza. 🙂

  1. I remember there is a Michael Ponti recording on a two story tall piano with super long strings but I don’t know which one. Also forgot the name of the piano. Please help! Thank you.
