Yesterday, the IE Arts & Humanities Division hosted a very special edition of Music Wednesday and an end-of-term gathering.

Laura Vázquez, pianist and Head of Piano at Yamaha Music Iberia gave a demonstration of the Bösendorfer Disklavier grand piano located in the IE Tower Piano Lounge.

This incredible instrument has the ability to play ¨phantom¨ reproductions of the world´s greatest pianists, without losing the artistic integrity of the musician´s original and individual work via digitalized piano rolls. Yamaha Music continues to work on the digitalization of antique piano rolls, in doing so, they bring history into the modern day – using technology as a means of honoring and valuing the humanities

Thank you to IE Campus Life, the IE Foundation and the IE Talent department as always for your collaboration on the IE Music initiative.
