"Book a musical calendar for all of December? What better way for your employees to start the morning, with little old me performing? The innovative, customer&employee focused Bridge Techologies is getting 24 customized musical snippets (including product placement for clients) starting Dec 1st. What custom made theme would you wish for? Hope you reach out so we can create magic during the month of Christmas." So after recording excerpts from 24 of Bach's preludes and fuges as film music for Batman comics at home (at my BatCave Studio) more fun recordings for Bridge Tech at Rainbow Studio is going on constantly. What a previlege.
December 3rd is the release date of my 7 Superhero Concert Etudes for young pianists! To each etude there is a superhero comic story drawn, colored and written by Emil Hauge. (This is the perfect Christmas gift!) On the same day as you can buy this combined music and comic book from Musikk-Huset you can also hear me play the pieces on YouTube with the comic stories blended in the video. Save the date in front of your laptops! The superhero etudes for piano are the first of its kind, a sort of a "modern pictures at an exhibition” (Modest Mussorgsky). Enjoy this fantastic universe and interpret your favourite stories the way you wish at the same time as you use the pieces to become a better pianist, or as we call it - a musical super hero! This musical comic book fits any school back pack and it will definitly make playing the piano become a cool thing amongst children!
On October 10th last month it was 10 years since my debut in Carnegie Hall. October 10th 2010. I remember the standing ovation. Sensational feeling. And then everybody sat down for the encore. Everybody but one. My father kept standing.
In between concerts we use our hands where they are needed. Still. To all my collegues, get out there and give some of your spare time to farming and animals. Yesterday was such a great day!
Also - tune in on my instagram profile (akselkolstad) for my Bach Batman Christmas Calendar! Every day until December 24th!
