People of Note - Fazioli

People of Note this week takes on an interestingly different format. My producer and I went to Ian Burgess Simpson’s Piano Shop in Lakeside where he had just taken delivery of a Fazioli Concert Grand for a local buyer. I invited Francois du Toit and three of his award winning piano students to come along with me and we discussed this amazing piano and all the music in the programme was played by the three students. When they had finished their pieces, I asked each of them what they thought about the piano. Ian Burgess Simson also contributed valuable insights into what makes the Fazioli pianos unique.
