ROBERT WELLS – CLOSE UP CLASSICS
Robert Wells releases his first solo album in 14 years
Over the last couple of years, Rhapsody in Rock has meant huge arena concerts with full orchestras and many stars. With Close Up Classics, Robert goes back to his roots; music for solo piano by the classical masters.
In 2010, Robert received a request from world-renowned concert pianist Staffan Scheja to participate in a tribute concert in connection with the Chopin 200 year anniversary. That inspired Robert to record this album, which we are now happy to be able to present. You will enjoy pieces by Liszt, Chopin, Beethoven, Stenhammar, Grieg, Rachmaninov and Debussy.
Through his newly established piano school, King of Piano, and this CD, Robert hopes to inspire new pianists, and create more of an interest for the instrument, as well as for classical music per se.
Sunday 14 November at 16.00 in Ersta church, Stockholm,
marks the day for Robert’s first solo concert with material from the CD.
A tour will take place in the spring of 2011.
