Event details

Gershwin Piano Quartet (Mischa Cheung, André Desponds, Benjamin Engeli, Stefan Wirth - pianos)

Four pianists at four grand pianos - a rare sight! In 1996, André Desponds, who is equally well-versed in jazz and classical music, founded the quartet in this unusual line-up. The four men don't just play Gershwin, as their name might suggest, but they have mastered almost the entire classical repertoire and adapted it to their own needs. With virtuosity and humor, they serve the audience a rousing mixture of classical, jazz and Broadway show. A rare listening pleasure and a great pleasure!
