As part of the ongoing Madras Week celebrations, pianists Anil Srinivasan and Sharik Hasan (jazz piano) present the first ever ‘piano duet’ concert on August 30, 7 p.m., at the Goethe Institut, Max Mueller Bhavan, Rytland Gate. Two pianos playing simultaneously explore the genres of classical and jazz music from around the world.
As a very special integration to this event, the children of Chennai (from across private schools and Corporation schools) present the works of Chennai-based composers from across the ages. These pieces will underscore and introduce the collaborative themes and pieces that the two pianists will then present. This is part of the Music Literacy Project.*
Nearly 80 children are expected to perform, trained by Dr Sudha Raja and the team at Rhapsody Music Education, an initiative to take a multi-genre approach to music education to Chennai schools.
The event is supported by Swathi Soft Solutions and other well-wishers.
