A slow and thoughtful approach to music.



An exercise in connection:

between the composer’s world and ours, therefore between past and present.



Deep understanding of the music we are listening to

through the comprehension of its original context.

After the publication of his CD Between Heaven and Earth, Italian pianist and conductor Filippo Faes developed the idea of ​​proposing it live in the form of concert conversations.

Concert Conversations are piano music and speech together. They are alternated in order to deeply explain and analyze music to the public. This exercise may not be immediate. How can modern audiences understand classical music today?

The music performed is from Schubert, Schumann, Beethoven, Debussy’s repertoire and others. Filippo Faes speaks fluent English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.
