Two Grammy-nominated jazz pianists, young jazz icons, Taylort Eigsti and Eldar Djangirov, performed a piano duo concert at Piedmont Piano Co., a first in history ever for both pianists to play together in a show, 2 shows, actually, at our store, SRO, at that! Playing on 2 fabulous FAZIOLI pianos that both pianists love, what a stunning performance by the two artists! Beyond description - the styles, techniques, their compositions, arrangements, the energy, their artistry - Simply, MAGNIFICENT!
What great pride for us at PPCo. to present the two together for the first time in a concert in the United States, in the world! It put our store on the map. Unbelievable! http://piedmontpiano.com/concerts/131205eldartaylor.html
The benefit concert "Jazz for Leyte" was a tremendous success. Full-packed, it was so touching to see such great support and love by everyone who attended and all the artists who offered their services for free for a great cause to help the victims of the Philippine typhoon, Haiyan. Words cannot express the emotions that filled the place, Piedmont Piano Co. There was so much love, joy, fun and laughter, as well as tears, and the music, of course! People from all places wanted so much to donate to the typhoon victims but they didn't know where to go. So when they heard of our coming benefit concert, many came just to give freely. On the other hand, to be given entertainment in return, great entertainment, great music, at that, they couldn't have asked for more. And food, too?! Wow, they got their money's worth. Really, it was great. Everything was great! And all of us, the organizers, the artists, couldn't have asked for anything more either! What a night! What a show! PROUD!!!
