The Érard Grand Piano Series: Bart van Oort

Event details

The Érard Grand Piano Series

Season 2 ~ Episode 7  

Enjoy a profound rendition on our Érard grand piano by star pianist Bart van Oort in the unique atmosphere of TenClub’s Mayer Manor in Amsterdam.

The Érard

The sound of TenClub’s 1892 Érard, restored with great precision and love, is original and unparalleled. The music as Bart van Oort will play it on the Érard is as the composers once intended it to be played. After all, not only were the ‘timeless’ pieces created on the instrument, but all the greats of classical music actually also played on an Érard grand piano: Chopin, Mendelssohn, Verdi, Liszt, Ravel, Fauré, Wagner, Debussy and Diepenbrock, to name but a few.

About Bart van Oort

Star pianist Bart van Oort studied piano and fortepiano at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague. In 1986 he won the first prize as well as the audience prize at the International Fortepiano Competition in Bruges before receiving a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Historical Performance Practice in 1993 at Cornell University (USA), where he studied with Malcolm Bilson. He has since performed, and given lectures and masterclasses all over the world. Bart van Oort has made over eighty recordings of chamber music and solo repertory.

Bart van Oort has a soft spot for Russian composers from the 19th, hence the theme of his program:
