David Scheel



 Created by popular demand after the success of Don’t Shoot Me, I’m Only the Piano Player, MAESTRO is a tour-de-force of character acting and piano playing, in which David brings to life 25 of the greatest nut-cases in musical history (and plays their works). Bach, Beethoven, Sir Thomas Beecham, Oscar Levant and others are brought to life, or impersonated, with pinpoint accuracy. In MAESTRO you will:-


- Be invited for drinks with the mad Erik Satie

- Hear a complete Beethoven sonata played in jazz

- Find out why Percy Grainger took a bath with his clothes on

- Discover how Toscanini lost an orchestra in the middle of the desert

- Meet the world’s worst opera singer, and the world’s worst violinist

- Hear the three tenors sing “Moon River”



This concert will make you laugh a lot, cry a little, and marvel at the beauty of the piano when played by a master.
