duo b!z'art Pianists  André Roe • Geoffrey  Baptiste


 

   We are the duo b!z’art, piano duet for 1 and 2 pianos, founded by André Roe and Geoffrey Baptiste in 2004.

    Bizarre means what is unusual and unconventional, to make you discover with passion the world of arts.

    Playing the piano with 4 hands, we use 20 fingers of 2 musicians sharing the 88 keys of a piano. This gives a very special show, where the hands intertwined on the keyboard with virtuosity.

    This ensemble provides a very unique repertoire. Sometimes the instrument can be intimate, like Salon-Music, other times it becomes symphonic imitating the orchestra.

    In addition, we find ourselves facing the piano, communicating together, inviting the public to share this special moment. Sincerity, energy and love of music is the focus of our ongoing research.

    Our concerts revolve around a strong and original theme (« Souvenirs, souvenirs, ... », « Made in USA », « Waltzes, tangos and other dances », ...), influenced by our musical tastes ranging from romantic to 20th century music, we combine happily classical hits and unknown masterpieces.

    We also enjoy meeting new audiences and we attach importance to educational concerts, interactive musical entertainment, specially designed for children.

    We regularly make concert tours across Europa (Scandinavia, British Isles, Baltic Republics, Croatia, Slovenia, ...) as well as in China in November 2017.
