Hello everybody!

With two of my pupils I actually wanted to perform "Aquarium" from "Carnaval des Animaux" by Camille Saint-Saëns (1835-1921) in concert. Due to Covid-19 we had to cancel it. But we didn't want to let our project die, so we recorded it. The stepfather of one of the pupils edited the recording, adding some beautiful videos he had made particularly for us. I'm very glad and thankful about so many help and goodwill, and today I'm able to present you the final result:

Thank you, Brinestone!

No, I have only one grand piano (an old and very nice Steinway M) and an upright piano (Steinway Z) in my teaching room. But the recording was made in one of the concert halls of our music academy where we have three grand pianos. It's the only hall with such a rich equipment, and it's the place, where the concert should have taken place. Now we have this video instead, and the whole world can listen cool
