So as you already found out, my name is Marie François, I'm a 24-year-old classical pianist born in Eksel, Belgium. Currently I'm finishing a postgraduate with Polina Leschenko. I live in Brussels and thought a lot about the idea of playing house concerts.
Now and then I organize a house concert myself, for the people that live in my village, and I love the idea of playing in a cosy living room in front of a small audience to create an intimate atmosphere that feels totally different from a concerthall. Composers like Mozart, Beethoven, Liszt, Chopin ... wrote music for this kind of setting.
So I figured, why not try and modernize that tradition by organizing house concerts in different places, different countries.
After my performance the audience can make a free donation to support my musical career. If you like this idea and if you have a piano (or you know someone with a piano) please fill in this form and we’ll arrange something together.
