HOW video on the structure behind musicpaintingLIVE
musicpaintingLIVE: a new performance genre where classical music unites the piano and canvas in perfect sync. Accomplished artists in their own right, pianist Reinis Zariņš and painter Maryleen Schiltkamp together have created a new dimension to listening. In their performances, masterpieces of piano repertoire are directly translated into stunning artworks which are highly personal yet fully aligned with the musical text. They have presented this unique concept in prestigious festivals and venues in the United Kingdom, Latvia and the Netherlands.
