Hiring the Passepartout Piano Duo
The Passepartout Piano Duo offers a wide range of music for your event helping you personalise it as you prefer. Alexandra and Nathan, two versatile classical and jazz trained pianists who graduated from one of the top conservatoires in the world (the Royal College of Music), will deliver professional standard music. Their concerts and appearances have taken them to prestigious venues in the UK such as the Elgar Room of the Albert Hall and the South Bank Centre, but also internationally in France, Japan and Romania.
Repertoire and the event
You can select music from their repertoire list but you can also request your favourite classical, pop or jazz tunes. Or for a no hassle approach, drop them a line describing your event and they will sort out the choice of repertoire for you.
Their style moulds to the event, be it a soothing style appropriate for a serene atmosphere to your wedding breakfasts, wedding ceremonies and drinks receptions, or a more lively spot-lit performance.
The duo can also suggest appropriate recorded music to fill in the gaps between sets.
But why a piano duet?
The classical piano duet compositions are simply extraordinary, but more than that, hiring a piano duet gives you the widest choice of repertoire as absolutely anything can be performed in this setting at a professional standard. Classical composers have used four-hands piano reductions for their works, so if you are looking for a more sophisticated approach for your event, the Passepartout Piano Duo can bring to life much of the orchestral repertoire, such as Tchaikovsky's 6th Symphony, Holst's The Planets Suite or Ravel's Bolero.
Particularly suited for weddings, Alexandra and Nathan are kind and supportive and have themselves been married since 2016, bringing that unique touch and a good omen to your special day!
For experiencing the duo at their full potential, an acoustic piano on the premises is desirable. This can be hired through the Passepartout Piano Duo as well at competitive rates.
