TOYPIANO+

This project is supported by arts council malta

Toy Piano+ explores the artistic potential of the toy piano as a concert instrument. This project consists of three main strands: i) a toy piano recital with electronic music and percussion; ii) a concert which combines the toy piano with grand piano and a backdrop projection of video-art; iii) an outreach program of 8 concerts for children taking place in schools and local councils - featuring a storytelling narration accompanied by a live toy piano soundtrack. Toy Piano+ involves the participation of 13 Maltese and international composers, 3 visual artists as well as the collaboration with writer Trevor Zahra and actor Joseph Galea. The 13 new compositions especially commissioned for this project will be recorded in Malta and produced as an album by international label Parma (USA). The album will be distributed on all music streaming platforms.
