Concert at Pianola Museum with Live Piano Rolls

Coming Saturday February 6th at 16:00 I’ll be playing a concert in the cutest museum of Amsterdam: The Pianola Museum.

This museum collects reproducing pianos and owns over 30,000 music rolls played by famous composers and pianists like Debussy, Rachmaninoff, Grieg and my favourite: Scriabin!

During the concert I will perform Scriabin’s music, but we will also play the rolls where you can hear Scriabin playing himself! These rolls have been lying untouched in the museum’s archieves for decades and it is time to bring them alive!

Please be welcome!
