What happens when you turn a piano concerto into chamber music, with one player per part? The pianist Tanya Bannister, joined by a fine complement of string players, puts three works to the test: Mozart’s Concerto No. 14 in E-flat, Chopin’s Concerto No. 2 in F minor and Schubert’s Adagio and Rondo Concertante in F. It’s perhaps no surprise that the Mozart and Schubert sparkle as chamber music, but for me it was a revelation to hear Chopin’s lines rendered with such filigree clarity.

Welcome! Music has been part of my being and everyday existence for as long as I can remember. I personally cannot imagine a better way than through music to struggle and connect to the heart of life and being human.

I am very much looking forward to programming interesting concerts that engage and connect us better to the music in this fast paced world. Please keep in touch and I look forward to sharing this musical journey together with you.
