David Scheel


Wanganui Midweek Wednesday September 12 2007


AT THE THEATRE  With Kate Spencer


David  Scheel  Master

        of  the  piano


  David Scheel is no pretend Victor

Borge.  Neither does he hanker af-

ter the starry heights of Liberace or

the cool sophistication of Gershwin.

   He’s  simply  an  amazing  pianist 

with  a  talent  to entertain  a crowd

with simple humour, as well as thrill

them with  masterpieces from those

he admires - including of course.....

Borge, Liberace and Gershwin!

   With  changes of  style,  including

Swan Lake  played  “a la blues” or

country and western,  Scheel open-

ed his  tour  of  New  Zealand  and

confirmed  to  his  Wanganui   audi-

ence why he’s truly an international


   His   own    compositions    were 

simply  beautiful,  and I  thoroughly

enjoyed  Scheel’s extremely enter-

taining piano expertise. He finished

with the  line.....”Don’t  shoot me,

I’m only the piano player.”
