Estonia handmade Concert Grand piano model 274

'The music was the jazz standard Tiger rag. The pianist a virtuoso, who one evening last November held a capacity crowd at London’s Cadogan Hall spellbound. He went on to give electrifying performances of two more jazz pieces, and was cheered to the rafters. But this was a performance and a concert with a difference. No surprise in the repertoire: Cadogan Hall gladly hosts jazz concerts as well as being the London home of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The surprise was the pianist, Andy Quin. For Quin is not a professional pianist at all, but a man who makes his living writing music for films, television and advertising.

Quin’s set had everything: casually but expertly executed Art Tatum-esque runs up and down the keyboard, a fascinating version of a Coltrane tune with sustained passages of perpetuum mobile, and a Gershwin finale in which he astonished the audience by doubling an already nippy tempo and then doubling it again.’
