Praise for Hastings’ New Phoenix Concert Grand Pours In

On Saturday September 9th, the Opus Theatre in Hastings celebrated the arrival of its new bespoke concert grand piano, the 9ft Phoenix-Opus, with a double-bill of performances from two exceptional pianists.

A matinee performance from Russian pianist Anton Lyakhovsky and an evening recital from young British pianist Oliver Poole on the world’s most technologically advanced concert grand piano “could be the start of a totally new chapter in the musical life of Hastings” according to Dr. Brian Hick at Lark Reviews. You can read the whole article here.

Another review said that the venue’s new piano was “magnificent, ground breaking and possibly earth-shattering”, whilst another noted that “The combination of these two talented musicians and the music theatre’s new technologically advanced piano produced a quality of sound which could not be surpassed.”
