Kobe Bean Bryant was an American professional basketball player. He entered the NBA directly from high school and won five NBA championships

He plays Moonlight Sonata in this video.

He learned this to show to his wife.

A tribute to a legend, a union of sports and music in one man.

If you have watched a piano concert or recital, you would have noticed that pianists on stage all sit with their right sides facing the audience. Why are the pianos placed in this position, at a right angle to the audience? Have you ever wondered who set this precedent? Who was the first performer to do this?

A 19th Century Marchisio piano, also nicknamed the ‘Immortal’ piano, has been put up for sale on eBay for an astonishing $2,000,000.

As one can assume from its name, that the Immortal Piano has survived many many years of hardship, during which time it has passed hands multiple times, travelled overseas from its home in Italy to the USA, and even appeared among Nazi Plunder during World War Two. It’s had quite the life. Perhaps the new owner can finally give it a few years of rest.... See More

When the object is something not quite inanimate, as in Chris Cander’s tale of a Blüthner piano, an extra dimension emerges; ideas of potentiality, and of the interplay between human and thing, come in to play.

Like Annie Proulx’s Accordion Crimes, The "Weight of a Piano" imagines what might happen if something designed for the nonverbal expression of thoughts and feelings were pressed into the service of speaking for a range of characters.

The lead musician, Andre Kempen, swims his way into the seat before a grand piano, while the three accompanying violinists stand around him. The music soon starts, with Kempen hitting the ivory keys and the violinists playing along, all breathing air bubbles as they serenade underwater. The beautifully-created video, like any other professionally-filmed piece, does not just show the musicians, but is interlaced with scenes of beautiful marine life.

The beautifully-created video, like any other professionally-filmed piece, does not just show the musicians, but is interlaced with scenes of beautiful marine life. From multi-coloured fish gliding serenely from side to side and turtles paddles gracefully around the screen, this is nature at its best.

Music of Erik Satie was instrumental in opening doors in musical expression, so that a number of sub-genres or "schools" could explore new territory. Firstly, Satie provided one of the sparks that set Debussy on a course towards the "Impressionism" movement, and he continued to support Debussy on this course until this style became fashionable and mainstream when the non-conformist in Satie poured scorn on his follower.
