To hear four virtuoso pianists play four grand pianos is a thrilling experience. The Gershwin Piano Quartet is made up of four charismatic Swiss pianists who have devised another spectacular concert to celebrate Swiss National Day on 1st August. Inspired by the rhythmic energy of Beethoven, expect plenty of musical surprises, a whirlwind of jazz, and popular musical styles in a programme of piano pyrotechnics not to be missed.
