What you'll do
Be welcomed with a glass of fine French wine and enjoy a unique, creative and intimate concert experience for lovers of music and poetry alike in the artist's typical Parisian apartment in the cultural heart of Paris Latin Quarter / Saint-Germain-des-Près. Concert pianist and music historian Bea will introduce you to some of the world's most exquisite masterworks for piano solo. You will sit very close up a beautiful Steinway grand piano, rarely seen or heard outside a major concert hall, to discover rarely heard musical jewels by Bach, Mozart, Beethoven and others interlaced with poems chosen by guests. Short commentaries introducing the musical works will help you deepen your understanding and heighten your enjoyment. Throughout the whole event and during the apéro following the performance, you will have a chance to meet and exchange with all other guests. A truly unique artistic experience and an ideal start into the evening to be continued in some of the city's most exquisite restaurants close by.
I conceived of this intimate, audience-interactive musico-poetic experience for all those who love art and who would love to experience it close up. I am a classical concert pianist and author who studied at Harvard and taught at Cambridge and who is passionate about the powerful synergies between music and poetry. understand and love more deeply a few handpicked musical masterworks reaching across time and place from JS Bach and Mozart to John Cage; let yourself savour the finest nuances of the music performed close-up a Steinway Concert Grand piano, hardly ever seen in a small private setting. Bring your favourite poem to share and heighten the musical experience.
Macarons, grapes, crackers, olives... depending on the season!
