Titled Pianist & Prankster, this fun and entertaining show is directed by Eva Di Cesare and sees Simon take his young audience on a musical journey of his life; from 5am practice sessions, his first public performance age 8 at Sydney Opera House, winning the Sydney Piano Competition age 10 to playing in front of Luciano Pavarotti at the age of 13.
Written by Simon Tedeschi, Tim McGarry and Eva Di Cesare, the engaging show is highlighted with hilarious anecdotes as Simon recalls the pranks and practices which have shaped his extraordinary life.
Pianist & Prankster is suitable for children aged 6 to 12 and includes renditions of some of Simon's favourite works, including Chopin's Minute Waltz, Beethoven's Fur Elise and in homage to his grandmother – a Polish Mazurka.
