Anatomy of the Piano

Part piano recital, part fantasy lecture, pianist Will Pickvance returns with his sell-out EdFringe 2013 show of virtuosity, dissection and surreal humour.

In uncovering the physical, emotional and spiritual anatomy of the piano, Pickvance sheds light on his own story as a musician and the codependency that exists between the piano and pianist. Piano solos, songs and underscores are accompanied by hand-drawn projections in a performance perfectly suited to the charming Victorian Anatomy Lecture Theatre at Summerhall.

Winner of WINDOW Emerging Talent Award Brighton Fringe 2014, having received critical acclaim on a tour of Australia earlier this year.

Enjoyed across generations and music tastes, the shows are never the same twice, featuring original takes on audience requests, played on the Cathedral Steinway… a Bach fugue evolves into a be-bop classic on its way to becoming a version of Nirvana’sSmells Like Teen Spirit…
