PIANO WITH 4 HANDS
The duo b!z’art, duo for piano with 1 and 2 pianos, was founded by André Roe and Geoffrey Baptiste in 2004. “Bizarre” is a French word that means unusual and unconventional. It’s the perspective from which they want the public to discover the world of art. Playing piano with 4 hands, 2 musicians share the 88 keys of a piano. It’s a very uncommon spectacle, in which hands move with virtuosity on the keyboard.
The ensemble performs a unique repertoire. Sincerity, energy and love for music is what they seek. Their concerts focus on an original theme (“Souvenirs, souvenirs, ...” “Made in USA”, “Valses, tangos et autres danses”..), influenced by their music taste that combines classic hits and unknown masterpieces from the romantic era of the 18th century to the 20th century. They often leave for concert tours across Europe (Scandinavia, British Isles, Baltic countries...).
Geoffrey Baptiste is a pianist in charge of celesta for the Orchestre Philharmonique Roayl de Liège since 2006, with which he has given over 100 concerts. He has also collaborated with the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg and the Philharmonie Zuidnederland. In January 2010, he performed Fantasy on Polish Airs by F.Chopin, accompanied by the Orchestre Philharmonique de Liège conducted by François-Xavier Roth.
André Roé, of Belgian and British origins, is a graduate of the Conservatoires Royaux de Liège and Brussels (E. Moguilevsky class), the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel and the Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris «Alfred Cortot» (S. Markarov class). He is a laureate of several contests for young talents organized in Belgium France and Italy. In 2006, he has also gained the Prix Pelemans conferred by the Union des Compositeurs Belges for his significant contribution to the promotion of the national repertoire.
