Four pianists - One concert

Joja Wendt, Sebastian Knauer, Axel Zwingenberger & Martin Tingvall

This charming program was recently highly celebrated in Hamburger Staatsoper by critics and audience alike and was thus sold out three times. Frankly, we did not hesitate to invite these impressively talented musicians onto our stage: Joja Wendt, Sebastian Knauer, Axel Zwingenberger and Martin Tingvall will serve up a summerly cocktail from Classic, Jazz, Boogie Woogie and Blues und needless to say best entertainment on eight hands and two grand pianos.
