A truly intimate musico-poetic experience for lovers of music, poetry, the arts and imagination. Chill, listen and share about music, poetry and meaning in the artist’s apartment close up a majestic Steinway concert grand piano (a model rarely seen outside major concert halls), feel the vibrations go through you and let yourself sink into exquisite masterworks by Bach, Mozart, Beethoven and more interlaced with poems and texts chosen by fellow guests. Bea’s reknowned expertise yet accessible personal introductions will deepen and heighten your enjoyment. “Now THIS is the Paris that most tourists never see!” “An experience we will never forget.” “There are few performers that understand that music is a gift to humanity and Bea freely shares that secret with everyone in the audience. Bravo!” “What an amazing and truly unique experience!” “... exceeded all expectations.” “Such a special and unique way to spend our last night in Paris.” “If you're looking for a cultural experience in Paris that makes you fall in love with Paris, choose this experience with Bea.” “The night could not have been more magical.” “I HIGHLY recommend hearing Bea play her beautiful music on her incredible piano. ❤️” “I will never forget this moment ....” “This by far was the best part of my trip to Paris.” "I would rate this 100 stars if I could!” “…and the music is transcendent”
I created this intimate, audience-interactive musico-poetic experience for all art-loving travelers, all those creatives thinkers, dreamers, imaginative children and lovers of beauty who simply want to bring more music and poetry into their lives. I am a classical concert pianist and author. I studied at Harvard and taught at Cambridge and am passionate about the powerful synergy between music and poetry. With a little (non-technical) commentary you will understand and love more deeply musical masterworks from JS Bach and Mozart to John Cage. Savour the music's finest nuances performed right in front of you on a Steinway Concert Grand piano, hardly ever seen in a small private setting. Bring your favourite poem or text close to share what we hold dear.
