NOTA DE PRENSA

Pianotainment se inició en 1996 por los dos pianistas alemanes Stephan Weh y Marcel Dorn. Los dos artistas humoristas de Baviera recibieron una intensa formación de piano clásico desde su infancia que complementaron posteriormente con una formación autodidáctica en jazz y blues.

Actualmente el dúo Pianotainment viaja alrededor del mundo para presentar su show “CRAZY CONCERT”. Ya sea en Nueva York, Dubái o Shanghái en todas partes del mundo se conectan con el público a través de su show virtuoso y divertido creando así una atmósfera de concierto fascinante.

Los dos pianistas extraordinarios logran hacer malabares a cuatro manos con música de piano clásica, pop y jazz. Tocando “Para Elisa” en tiempo lento o “El vuelo del moscardón” a una impresionante velocidad, jugando con pelotas de tenis o tocando el piano al revés, Pianotainment mantiene siempre el balance entre exigencia musical y espectáculo. 25.000 personas independientes del sector eligieron al dúo en el Top Ten del entretenimiento en Alemania (Conga Awards), y según el periódico alemán Süddeutsche Zeitung Pianotainment es considerado como el mejor „acto acrobático de piano“ en el mundo.
