Pole-Position: Piano

Dear all,

A lot worth watching this week:

As I mentioned last week, Alice Sara Ott and Francesco Tristano are at the forefront of driving change in classical music, challenging the status quo of piano shows and constantly coming up with unique and thoroughly thought-out curations of music & visuals in their recitals. Enjoy this joint performance of the two in Paris from two weeks ago, containing both solo and duo repertoire!

With sforzato, we're currently on-site in Zürich covering the Concours Géza Anda 2024 on social media. The semi-finals are happening tomorrow and Thursday, and the grand finale will be at the Tonhalle Zürich on Saturday. All concerts are being live-streamed on the YouTube channel of the Géza Anda Foundation: tune in to witness the rise of a new piano star!

I have also recently watched The Pianist again and can very much recommend this Academy-Award-winning movie starring Adrien Brody.

All my best -
