Pianolobby Sponsors Local Festivals

Pretty much everywhere nowadays there are wonderful local festivals in so many different guises. These strike me as celebration of the wealth of talent that exists in every community.

This year Pianolobby is sponsoring 3 different events in South London. 2 are piano festivals and the other is a more general Arts event.

It is open to pianist of all standards, but we are keen to support pianists at the beginning of their playing and we are sponsoring the grade 1-2 class. The festival is on Saturday 7th March.

There are art exhibitions, music in all its shapes and forms, walks, street art, discussion groups, comedy and fairs where there are bouncy castles to beer tents and food stalls to jewelry stalls. The list could go on and on. We are sponsoring an event and will keep you posted which one it is when all is confirmed.Do keep an eye open for an updated website at www.dulwichfestival.co.uk

It is run by the industrious Lorraine Liyanage who also runs the SE22 Piano School as well as so many other piano related events. Pianolobby is a proud event sponsor. The Piano Festival takes place on the 7th June at the James Allen Girls school. For more information have a look at the beautiful website which is: www.dulwichmusicfestival.co.uk

CONCERT: CELLO & PIANO. September 20th

y3 poster UK 1It isn’t our usual thing to advertise concerts here, but we thought this would be a bit special. It is a cello and piano recital of music inspired by folk music. The concert is titled foklore & fantasy and strikes us as a very interesting concept. Folk tradition in music has always been of interest to ‘classical’ composers who skillfully manage to weave this style into their own music.

This concert is performed by a great friend of Pianolobby, who has written a blogpost about life as a freelance cellist.

For this concert, Hannah is joined by the very talented pianist Jillian Jack in this recital. Both Hannah and Jillian are both graduates of the prestigious Juilliard School of music in New York.

Details of how to get tickets are on the attached poster.

If would like more information, Hannah can be contacted on 07921 761 772 or on email to hmsloane@gmail.com

See you there!!


All WILH. STEINBERG IQ pianos have a beautiful clear tone which impresses both professional musicians and music lovers with a keen ear throughout the world.

SteinbergNumerous stages take place before the 6000 individual components complete a WILH. STEINBERG piano.
Certified sound boards from Strunz are fitted which uses wood from the mountains of Bavaria and Austria grown at an altitude of more than 1000 metres. Growth at this height is much slower so that the wood has very tight annual rings, giving a remarkable solidity – a very important ingredient for the famous WILH. Steinberg sound.

All WILH. STEINBERG Level IQ pianos are fitted with Renner actions from the Renner factory in Stuttgart. For many decades they have proved to be the best worldwide and represent the highest possible quality. The IQ pianos are also fitted with the internationally renowned Kluge keyboards.

The grey cast-iron frame is the guarantee for the stability of a good piano. It has the strength to carry the enormous strain of the strings which is more than 20 tons. Grey cast-iron also has the least tendency to resonate – an essential requirement for our pianos which are noted for their purity of tone.

The experience of 130 years of piano making in Eisenberg and the high quality control in the factory ensure that you will possess a masterpiece of German piano-building giving pleasure for a lifetime of music-making.
