Masters of tomorrow
The world is moving forward at lightning speed. We develop, build, grow and evolve. We use every moment. Every second counts. Images or sounds: they pour in. Questions or dilemmas: they challenge us all the time. We are constantly stimulated and always on the move.
We all feel the need to hit the pause button from time to time. It is a need to return to ourselves and to get back to basics. To enjoy one moment – a perfect moment. To enjoy nature, unity and art at the highest level.
Piano LAB offers you that moment. In an imaginative environment, Piano LAB brings to life the divine tones of our earth’s masters. Everyone comes to rest with sparkling piano playing by international virtuosos. The silence, filled with sounds, rhythm and melody, provides balance. The Landcommanderij in Alden Biesen gives Piano LAB the perfect scene to evoke class, excellence and relaxation.
While enjoying exclusive moments of experience, together with Piano LAB you contribute to the development of a new generation of international piano talent. Piano LAB brings together for you the masters of today and shapes the virtuosos of tomorrow. During a multi-day internship, outstanding teachers polish and file the skills top young international pianistic talent. Music has always moved people. Bach, Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, … for centuries, they have inspired the greatest thinkers. Piano LAB provides the right breeding ground to foster the exceptional and unique talents that bring colour to our society.
