A few months ago I found myself having some time left in a studio, after recording an album that will be released later this year. Spontaneously I took the chance to do some solo recordings as well. A couple weeks before, Mira Lu Kovacs had released her new album „What Else Can Break“. One of the songs - „Stay A Little Longer“ - had been moving around my mind for a while. The music and lyrics of her beautiful piece touch me and speak to me… So, I decided to try a solo piano version of it. Here it is!
I’m honored to be part of the new EP „breakables“, alongside other great musicians who created their own versions of Mira’s songs.

Solopiano Solidarity Festival

Friday, 06.05.2020 by Verena Zeiner

Streaming-Festival organized by the great pianist David Helbock. Find details here!
This is a virtual-online solopiano festival with 4 concerts out of David's home in western Austria.
Every concert will bring also a composition that fits the theme of the festival - SOLIDARITY.
Thanks to „Stiftung Philanthropie Österreich“ we are able to cover the basic costs of this production.
During the stream there will be the possibility to buy a virtual ticket and make donations. These will go directly to the artists and they will also donate part of it to people suffering from the corona crisis.

My concert will be on June 10th, 9 pm. Follow this link:

The donation of my concert will directly go to Caritas and who started a campaign to raise awareness for homeless women and the fact that they need different things than homeless men. Homeless women of course also menstruate but they have difficulties buying hygiene products and clean underwear. Please help me raise money that I can pass on to one of the houses of the Caritas to support women with these products!
