The upcoming recital by Piano Pinnacle provided Ergo-Motion Consulting is an opportunity seized in order to continue supporting community programs as well as provide support to two talented musicians as they perform locally and compete internationally.
Piano Pinnacle found its roots in 2006, when Deborah Grimmett and Iman Habibi gathered to perform a number of four-hand duets in joint piano and chamber recitals. The two musicians then went on to complete their studies, and have now joined forces again as a duo team. In their official debut as Piano Pinnacle, they won Third Prize, and The Audience Choice Award at the 2010 International Northwest Piano Ensemble Competition, and have since received much recognition and praise for their collaboration. The duo team have been selected as the only Canadian team to take part in the second round of the 15th International Music Tournament (TIM 2012) in Verona, Italy. The two pianists work under the guidance and mentorship of one of the most accomplished piano duos Kenneth Broadway and Ralph Markham.
The repertoire will include:
Mozart - Sonata for two pianos in D major, K.448
Arensky - Suite No. 1, op. 15
Brahms - Variations on St. Anthony Chorale (commonly known as Variations on a Theme by Haydn)
Rachmaninoff - Russian Rhapsody
