Yamaha Music London launch Silent Piano concert season

04be71d4-431d-40fe-9523-dedcbb4591c0

 

This September sees Soho-based Yamaha Music London hosting a very different kind of piano concert series – one with an extraordinary twist that’s sure to bring a brand new musical experience to the capital’s music lovers.

 

The four concerts will feature an eclectic combination of jazz and classical performed by acclaimed pianists Thomasz Zyrmont, Eren Önsoy, Andrew Zolinsky and Varvara Tarasova. The twist is that all performances will take place on Yamaha’s award-winning ‘Silent Pianos’, with the audience experiencing the music through headphones, remotely and wirelessly!

 

Additionally, at some Silent shows, audiences are free to roam around performance spaces enjoying the music from a variety of visual and audio perspectives.

 

The events are sure to prove equally popular amongst the technology-curious. This unique combination of the traditional acoustic piano and the latest state-of-the art digital music technology will be put through its paces by of some of the UK’s finest up-and-coming piano artists.

 

Watch Varvava here, albeit on a normal grand, playing ‘Chopin’ from Schumann’s Carnaval:

 

Yamaha Music London’s Nigel Hill says, ‘This is a rare chance for our guests to hear virtuoso musicians up-close and personal, whilst experiencing the next chapter in piano innovation.’

 

The concerts takes place on 7, 14, 21 and 28 September and will start at 6.30 pm. Tickets are free of charge but, due to the intimate nature of the Yamaha Music London recital room, limited to 40 per performance.

 

So book early to avoid disappointment!
