Robert Wells receives medal from the Swedish King and appraises pianists of tomorrow when accepting the medal for the King of Piano.
Pianist, composer and entertainer, Robert Wells, will receive a medal for outstanding artistic achievements as an entrepreneur within the cultural sector. The medal will be awarded on the 16th of February at the Royal Palace with the King and Queen present. On the very same day, his eleven-year-old piano student, Alice Power, from Solna will be crowned “King of Piano 2011”.
King of Piano is Robert Wells’ web-based piano academy, where online instruction is blended with games and the members’ own video-taped performances. King of Piano is available in Swedish, English, and Chinese.
“I follow many young pianists whom I get to know through King of Piano, and at my concerts. Alice Power is one of the greatest and most potential talent I have ever come across. She plays dynamically, her technique is impressive, and she is already a stage personality, which is equally important,”Robert Wells says.
Alice will receive her prize by Robert Wells in person at his own music club, Rhapsody Lounge, at Engelen in the Old Town of Stockholm. This award comes as no surprise to Alice. She was elected “King of Piano of the Month” last year, and performed alongside Robert Wells on several occasions. The highlight came in November 2011, when Alice and Robert appeared with Rhapsody In Rock and played duets at the Royal Albert Hall in London. This concert was recorded by Chinese television and will be broadcasted in the upcoming days.
“Being elected “King of Piano of the Year” is inspiring, it’s great to get feedback from such a talented pianist as Robert Wells,”Alice Power claims.
In addition to the medal, as the 2011 King of Piano, Alice also wins a fantastic stage piano, and the opportunity to continue to play with Robert at several concerts during 2012.
