Anatomy of a Piano

Will Pickvance (piano /entertainer)

Will asks Father Christmas for a spaceship - he gets a piano!

An adventure into the world of piano - where they come from, how they evolved and why they make a pretty cool Christmas present. Featuring Bach’s cave piano, Beethoven’s bad moods and a jam with ‘Fats’ Waller.

Anatomy of the Piano premiered at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2013, receiving critical acclaim and sell-out audiences. The one-man piano performance subsequently toured the UK, Australia and Malaysia. Billed as ‘part recital, part dissection’, the show features whirlwind piano playing, songs and stories as well as hand-drawn projections. This concert is recommended for adults and children over six.
