TV station “ARTE” with Kit Armstrong’s recital
Recording of the concert on July 24, 2019 – further contribution and DVD planned
On January 26, the television station ARTE showed a recording of Kit Armstrong’s concert. The American pianist played at the Margravial Opera House in Bayreuth on July 24, 2019.
He chose two very different grand pianos for the concert: a modern Steingraeber concert grand E-272 and a chamber concert grand Ed. Steingraeber 200 from 1890. The latter can mainly be seen in the stream. This instrument is identical in construction to the last grand piano that Franz Liszt owned. The recording can be found at ARTE in the media library.
The second part of the concert, in which Armstrong played the modern concert grand E-272, will be shown in another version in Arte.tv. The TV station is also planning a DVD, among other things, with photos from the Steingraeber manufactory and from the grand piano selection by Kit Armstrong. The timing for these releases has not yet been determined.
