Artist Portrait

Piano Circus

Band,
Classical

Since 1989 Piano Circus has inspired the creation of a unique repertoire of new music for six keyboards and brought it to a wide audience through live performances, recordings and broadcasts together with education and outreach projects. All artistic decisions are made by the six pianists; there is no artistic director, so the work they create is the joint outcome of six individual visions of what music making can be. The group performs only new music, most of it written specially for them. Current members: David Appleton, Kate Halsall, Semra Kurutac, Paul Cassidy, Dawn Hardwick and James Young.
