INTRODUCING FRANCIS ALAIN KONAN: PIANIST OF THE MONTH, JANUARY 2013

INTRODUCING FRANCIS ALAIN KONAN

We only recently discovered the performances¬† –¬† and learned the extraordinary story — of this remarkable man, Francis Alain Konan, who is largely self-taught, lives on Africa’s Ivory Coast, has only an out-of-tune upright to practice and play on, and whose natural, probative musicality is such as to transcend any challenges. We were touched not only by his remarkable achievements, but that he was able to do so in spite of overwhelming odds, all the while looking after his young son. We are pleased to introduce him to a wider audience, and also as our first pianist of the month.
