Renowned pianist and teacher Edwin Gnandt is coming to Richmond.

Gnandt will present an extended workshop, exploring topics from his two most recent books Understanding Chopin Piano Style and The soul of Music: Gifts from the Golden Age of Piano Nov. 6 starting at 10:30 a.m. at the Salvation Army-Richmond Community Church, 8280 Gilbert Rd. The special event is organized by the Richmond branch of the B.C. Registered Music Teachers Association (BCRMTA).

Gnandt enjoys a collaborative career in music as pianist, accompanist, author, adjudicator, competition juror, workshop clinician, international speaker and professor of piano and music at Ambrose University in Calgary. He adjudicates festivals across Canada and recently was a juror for the Canadian Music Competition.

Having studied at the Juilliard School of Music, he has recorded for CBC with a variety of artists of national and international stature. He is also listed in the Lexington's Who's Who of Professionals in North America.  

In recent years, Gnandt has conducted extensive research into the mind and music of Chopin. In preparation for his soon-to-be-released book (2019) entitled The Inner World of Fryderyk Chopin: Psychology, Medicine and the Majorca Period, he has made research trips to Paris, France and the Carthusian Monastery in Valldemossa on the Island of Majorca where Chopin spent the winter of 1838-1839.

The BCRMTA welcome all its members, visitors and guests to the workshop.

Grandt will bring copies of his books for purchase. Cost for non-branch members and guests is $20 at the door.
