Full house at the Gershwin Hotel yesterday, and a new concert tonight at Caffe Vivaldi.

With approx. 80 people in the audience, the concert lobby of the Gershwin Hotel was filled up to it´s maximum. Catharina and Aksel blasted off with the Brahms Scherzo who took the audience by storm.

This was actually the first concert either of the artists ever had played together, still it looked as if they were having so much fun and being totally relaxed together on stage. Michelle and Nicholas also made a fantastic impression on the audience. The relaxed environment combined with the outstanding performances and Aksel's hilarious jokes made the audience connect with the musicians in a very unique way.

The day before the concert, after the piano tuner had finished off and left the Gershwin Hotel, the grand piano got a undefined "click" on almost every key. The tuner wasn´t able to come back to cure the sick Baldwin grand piano before just one hour on the concert day - but thankfully, he succeded, just in time. But something tells us the Baldwin needs a total makeover today..

You can see more pictures from the concert on the media center.


Right now, we're heading off to Caffé Vivaldi where we're performing tonight. We took a detour to take som pictures on Times Square.

The history of Café de Concert

Café de Concert began a few days before the 19th of June 2003 when Aksel Kolstad together with a colleague performed live on Midt i Musikken, a classical music program on NRK radio P2. During the program, the trial concert was announced, to be held at Kastanjen restaurant on Bygdøy Allé in Oslo.
