Pianos - and keyboards of all shapes and sizes - have been at the heart of St George's from the very start, joining the dots in a programme that roams across endless styles and ages of music.
Remarkably, these most extraordinary of instruments have never had their own frestival - until now!
What better way to celebrate the recent transformation of St George's than with the launch of this new Bristol Keyboard Festival.
Join for this non-stop, week-long festival as St George looks back over their shoulder to where the keyboard first started and fast forward to the realm of future possibilities...
From Norwegian jazz supremo Tord Gustavsen on the opening night to Paul Lewis at the close, Bristol Keyboard Festival will celebrate the piano and that special thing called pianism, in all ints infinite variety. Along the way, enjoy pianistic encounters with the ever-engaging James Rhodes, Lucy Parham's Debussy show with Simon Russell Beale, a Leeds competition finalist, and the hi-tech, multi-media piano adventures of Zubin Kanga.
But this festival doesn't stop there. Other keyboards will be celebrated too, and the musical magic that occurs when fingers press down on a range of black and white keys. So St. George's will welcome iconoclast harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani, David Owen Norris playing the Mozart on the fortepiano once owned by Florence Nightingale, and the back-to-the-future trip of Will Gregory's glorious Moog Ensemble.
