Duo B!zart are Belgian pianists André Roe and Geoffrey Baptiste who have been entertaining audiences across Europe with piano duets since 2004.
During their visit, they will give two performances of their children’s show "Twenty Fingers on a Piano" which is specially designed for 5 to 10 year olds.
During this one hour show, André and Geoffrey become acting and performing artists helping children discover famous fairy tales (Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, ...) and forgotten games (spinning top, blind man's buff). The show includes music by Percy Pitt, Maurice Ravel and Georges Bizet, and develops children’s imagination and pleasure of music. We plan to liaise with local schools to arrange these concerts and it is yet to be decided whether the concerts will be in school halls or at The Swallow Theatre.
In the evening the duo will present a concert of lively and descriptive piano duets including music by Brahms, Faure, Ravel, Grieg and Bernstein at The Swallow Theatre aimed at an adult audience although children are of course welcome.
