We hosted our 15th piano recital for our students at the new Steinway Serenade, an acoustically treated auditorium located near to the main Steinway Gallery showroom in Palais Renaissance. The event was advertised on papers and the audience turn up exceeded both the expectations and the capacity of the auditorium! Fourteen student performers have entertained the attentive audience that had loved every single player.

Introducing Takahiro Shirai, a contemporary trumpeter of an astonishing virtue. Takahiro is a highly talented performer who insists on using his $20 second hand junk trumpet that he once bought in China. He has used this trumpet for hundreds of performances so far, bringing out a certain aspect of modesty and dedication to his playing. His performances bring out the soul of every note as they come together and show you that he is an artist true to his art and form. Click here ► to watch Takahiro Shirai's performance
