The Crazy Pianos
The piano is an instrument very familiar to all of us but which has a sound and musical possibilities pretty unknown for the little kids.
The understanding of this singular instrument is the understanding of many years of the history of the music, as almost all the composers wrote pieces for it, and not only "solo" pieces, but also pieces which integrated it into the orchestra.
The possibilities of the piano inherited from a singular evolution during the centuries have turned this instrument into a resource used in all the musical environments we can find nowadays; from the musical school to musical conservatories and concert rooms all over the world.
This unique concert wants to show the endless possibilities of this instrument as a box full of feelings: joy, sadness, movement, etc.
However and because of the age to which this concert is aimed, the concert explores just three main feelings: joy, sadness and evocation.
We understand evocation as the capacity of each pupil of imagining things through the perception of this/her own experience.
We hope this will be an enrichening experience for all the pupils and we hope it will be a help for their teachers to explore in the lessons the diffrent pedagogical objectives of music as a school subject.
