COFFEE BREAK | Swiss Pianist Plays Piano In Mid-Air

By Jennifer Liu on August 18, 2017

Piano playing has reached new heights, literally! As part of this year’s Contre-Plongées Festival in Jaude, France, Alain Roche performed his signature “Piano Vertical” act in the town square—hanging over the audience in the sky.

Roche conceived the series in 2013, and has brought the show to Switzerland, Germany, Austria and France.

Of note that “Piano Vertical” performances are improvised… out of thin air.

Have another COFFEE BREAK HERE.
