Their music showcases their impeccable taste, boundless imagination and remarkable technique. The concert takes place in an old historical tenement house called “Dębinskim” or “Under Barrel”.

The setting was intimate and nicely decorated. A glass of white wine was a wonderful inclusion. The pianist enthralled the audience with about 90 mins of excellent renditions. Highly recommended especially if you have a love for piano recitals.

What a lovely gem in the centre for classical music lovers! Markus the host made us all welcome with some bubbles and some interesting information about the life of Chopin before we had an hour of exquisite piano playing. Definitely recommend!
