French star demands 102-key pianoNews
The maverick French soloist Lucas Debargue has adopted a 102-key instrument built by the French maker Stephen Paulello.
Lucas will perform on the megapiano at the Philharmonie de Paris for this weekend’s recital of Bach, Schumann, Fauré and Scriabine.
There is no mention in the concert programme of the unorthodox keyboard.
Most pianists get by with 88 keys.
