ModernSoloPiano is a movement. The piano has been the central instrument for composition and musical contribution for centuries.
[audio:hauschka_01_ginsterweg.mp3] During the whole of its development it has consistently helped great artists to emerge. However, in the last few decades an elitist sclerosis has established itself. The individual genres have cut themselves off.
They are self-selecting and believe themselves to be at the vanguard of a new developmet. Yet they are only part of the whole movement. ModernSoloPiano is an interdisciplinary network of international solo pianists which represents jazz, pop, classical and new music and all symbiotic forms and demonstrates that solo piano not only exists but is, above all, varied, exciting and beautiful.
