Free the Piano

Mathilde Wantenaar composed her Rhapsody for Piano and Strings specifically for Daria van den Bercken and Britten Sinfonia, as an answer to Bach’s fifth Brandenburg Concerto. The world’s oldest and very youngest piano concerto on a single night – the Piano Biennial has commenced!

Devilish fingers and pure poetry

‘A pianist you want to hear no matter what he performs,’ writes New York Times. His program has something for everyone.

Piano and friends: festive chamber music

Brahms’ Hungarian Dances for piano four hands and Dvořák’s Piano Quintet – no better way to enter your Sunday than with festive chamber music!

Stay tuned!

After movie: Piano Biënnale 2021

May 2021 marked the very first edition of the Piano Biennale!

Even though the brand new festival was forced to take place online, we look back with great joy and pride on four days of livestreams, meet & greets, workshops, an interactive talk show and so much more in which the piano was surrounded by other genres and art forms. The music was the starting point, the various art disciplines provided stimulating presentations. A festival for all lovers and newcomers of piano music from the beautiful concert halls in Arnhem and Nijmegen.

Watch the aftermovie of Piano Biennale ’21 here!
