“Totally compelling”  The Guardian

“This zany combination of six pianists is pure musical theatre. The effects mesmerize”  The Observer

“Extraordinary to behold”  The Times “Piano Circus is spectacular. If contemporary music has any equivalent to the Red Arrows, then this ensemble must surely be it.” BBC Music Magazine

Recognised as one of the world’s leading contemporary music ensembles for more than a quarter of a century, Piano Circus comprises six pianists performing specially commissioned works by a wide variety of composers.

A Piano Circus performance is one of the music world’s unique experiences. In their trademark circular setup, combining classical virtuosity and uncanny precision with an incisive, contemporary approach, the intensity of their onstage rapport has a compelling effect on the audience.
