Part recital, part rehabilitation.

Genre-defying piano virtuoso and wit, Will Pickvance (creator of Anatomy of the Piano) has spent years grappling with his addiction to meandering piano solos and capricious musical mutations. Here he celebrates this very struggle, taking inspiration from Haydn’s Creation through to Radiohead, with Fats Waller, Keith Jarrett and many others along the way.

A melting pot of altered rhythms and corrupted melodies cooked up in the charming Anatomy Lecture Theatre, alongside Pickvance’s trademark presentational style of stories and songs.
