The fastest rising act in the Hardstyle scene is not what you might expect it to be…. It’s not a producer or DJ … no, it’s a classical pianist!
In only one year the Hardstyle Pianist has taken the Hardstyle scene by storm by arranging famous hardstyle tracks and playing them on a classical piano. In most occasions he plays solo, but he also performs with other solo musicians, singers and with the Hardstyle Pianist Orchestra. In the ‘Hardstyle Pianist In Concert’ event the pianist and his orchestra captivate both hardstyle and classical music lovers with unique arrangements form hardstyle songs, special guests and DJs. On stage and online the Hardstyle Pianist is gaining popularity fast. His Youtube videos and Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/hardstylepianist/ keep attracting more and more fans.
The Hardstyle Pianist played live during the Q-dance FREAQSHOW (new year 2016/2017), launched his new concept ‘Hardstyle Pianist In Concert’ in a sold-out HEDON Zwolle in 2017, played at Defqon.1 (2017) and has already worked with and built a fanbase amongst the biggest names in the Hardstyle scene. In August 2017 the single Sunbeam was released, a collaboration between Andy SVGE & the Hardstyle Pianist. In 2018 the Hardstyle Pianist and his orchestra kicked off the year by playing a surprise act during the Coone Live set at Hardbass in a fully packed Gelredome Stadium. 2018 will be another exciting year with more national and international gigs, the Hardstyle Pianist In Concert Tour (May 2018) more collabs with hardstyle producers and the first Hardstyle Pianist EP expected to be released in the first halve of the year.
