PIANOGUIDE was founded by pianists Elisa Medinilla and Frederik Croene. Frederik Croene’s passion for radically new recital formats (Roll over Czerny, 492 Kilo, Mars II, …) and Elisa Medinilla’s extensive experience and skills as a performer of the Nadar Ensemble come together in PIANOGUIDE: a visionary new piano collective.
PIANOGUIDE focuses on new compositions in which images (video, choreography, gestures), concepts and/or ideas play as important a role as sounds.
PIANOGUIDE advocates for a new understanding of pianistic identity by putting its own compositions on the program.
PIANOGUIDE events are based on a combination of ideas building on keyboard traditions and theories on virtuosity, pedagogy, conceptual art, and are set up around an attractive and provoking visual approach.
