IMPROMPTU

It’s time! Time to stop time

The PIANO VERTICAL seeks to provoke the teeming crowd to somewhere
Let the idler stop, look up to the sky and live a new, although familiar, experience: the emotion of music.
Offering the people a moment of indulgence.

AURORE & CREPUSCULE

Moment of passage

The outdoor performance of Piano Vertical takes place at dawn and at dusk. Alain Roche offers two heavenly and distinct compositions.
Through the first light of dawn, when the night lifts, Piano Vertical slowly reveals itself and makes time stand still.
At dusk, when the horizon becomes indistinct, the inside of the piano lights up as if in an imaginary flight, punctuated by tiny electric touches and nocturnes.
