Piano Tuning for Andre Laplante Performance, August 2014

Andre Laplante will be performing two concerts at the Hornby Island Summer Music Festival in August 2014.  He is known as one of the world’s great pianists, and we are so lucky to have him coming to British Columbia and especially this beautiful gulf island off the coast of Vancouver Island.

I have the great honour to be the piano technician for Andre’s two upcoming performances, tuning and preparing the Bechstein grand piano at the Hornby Community Hall.  He will be performing solo piano music on August 7th, 2014, and chamber music with the Enso String Quartet on August 9th, 2014.  Both performances are at 8:00pm.  For more information, go to:

Here’s a review of an Andre Laplante performance:

Via Salzburg Chamber Orchestra – Mayumi Seiler, artistic director
Mozart Piano Concerto in A major, K. 414

“…bone deep musical sensibility; a perfection of detail in the meaningful context of the whole. Nothing, neglected, nothing inflated, and everything brimming with life….I am in no doubt he (Laplante) is among the master pianists.”   

Ken Winters, The Globe and Mail, 2006
