The Piano presents a celebration concert to launch the arrival of our new Steinway D piano.

Christchurch pianists of all ages and levels have auditioned to perform in this exciting celebration concert. 

The second half will be performed by Michael Endres. The German/New Zealand Pianist Michael Endres has been described by Richard Dyer of the Boston Globe as, " of the most interesting pianists recording today " and by British Gramophone Magazine “...he is an outstanding Schubert Interpreter". Among his many recordings (thirty-three in total) he has won the prestigious French award, Diapason D’or, three times and was also awarded the 'Choc du Musique' twice, with The New York Times reviewing "performances with pianist Michael Endres were revelatory".
