homeofficepianist


Welcome to homeofficepianist, a website embracing the unique opportunities of this moment in time to explore alternative forms of creative communication. In sharing the result of his daily practice sessions with you, the homeofficepianist invites you into the everyday rhythms of his musical journey

About three years ago, utilising the time at home afforded by the well known reasons, the homeofficepianist embarked on an expansive exploration of the musical universe, with each journey catalogued in a collection of periodic recordings.


Initially, these recordings were made as a tool to self-monitor practice progression. However, these humble recordings capture something of the feeling of performance, and therefore the homeofficepianist began to share them with friends and colleagues. The positivity of this experience has inspired him to create this platform to welcome you into this musical exchange, joining him on a mystical and enlightening path.

These pieces were arranged by Giacomo Puccini himself.
They reveal the greatness of his genius.
He uses the piano in an ideal way and did not just produce a mere reduction of the opera score.
Not many notes, just the important ones. Sometimes he does not follow the original song line,
in order to make it more fit for the piano and this other form of music.
I can see his sincerity and seriousness and for that he has found a place in my heart.

It is, of course, not possible to transfer the dramatic atmosphere and power of the real opera performance onto the piano.
For me as a performer, it is difficult to find the right balance between the attempted imitation of the opera voice
and the necessities of the piano.
But anyway I consider these pieces as little jewels
