16 Aug Kevin Suherman Launches CD and Schimmel K219
All ears were on the new Schimmel K219 Konzert Grand in the beautiful ballroom at Rippon Lea Estate on August 16th. It performed more than admirably under the amazing fingers of young Indonesian Concert Pianist, Kevin Suherman.
The evening held two celebrations; the Australian launch of this sensational new grand piano, as well as the launch of Kevin Suherman’s third Schimmel International Artist Series CD recording. This new CD features works by List and Chopin, as well as Hungarian Rhapsody by Listz, Kevin’s encore which left the audience in awe.
The Schimmel K219 features Schimmel’s new Piano Action concept; whereby a full concert-sized grand piano action is fitted into a medium sized grand. Slightly larger than the K213 grand, this new model offers enhanced mid and bass response and power, giving the performer even more scope for dynamic exploration.
Thanks to the guidance of Max Cooke, the program was complemented by two additional pianists, Victor Hu and Jayden Taviera with violinist Williard Chong.
