“The Steinway Two Piano Festival actually started out both to highlight to the world that we’d acquired a new piano, and also as a celebration of piano and performance. This year we’ve got 6 nights and loads of talented players including Charlie Watts from the Rolling Stones who is over with the ABC&D of Boogie-Woogie. When he was here last year he brought Mick Hucknall and we can only speculate as to who he’s bringing this year!

Despite being a piano festival, the players involved are all quite different, complimentary towards each other and they are all first-rate. It’s nice to have such great players playing on Steinways which are the Rolls-Royce of pianos and they are a great company to work with. I’ll definitely be there every night because it’s right up my street.”
