East meets West – meditative classical music and Sanskrit mantras

Om Namah Sivaya!

With the end of lockdown and Spring’s arrival coming soon, I am happy to share with you my next adventure. I teamed up with my long year friend, yoga student and talented classical pianist Andrea Kmecova to bring classical piano music and Sanskrit mantra invocation together.

This online concert will be quite different, innovative and experimental, and I hope you’ll join us.

Andrea summarised this concert as follows: You will be treated to reflective Western classical music – I have picked pieces by Bach, Chopin, Rachmaninov, Debussy, Satie, and I will also include modern composers such as Villa-Lobos, Ennio Morricone, Arvo Pärt and Philip Glass.

The experience of listening to meditative piano compositions will be enriched by short mindfulness meditation with Sanskrit mantra invocation at the start and at the end of the concert.
Curious? Check out our short video with our chat about the concert. 

NB: The UK will be moving to British Summer Time in the early hours of the 28th, so remember to change the clocks one hour forward on the day of the concert. Book you ticket on the button below:

If you buy the Patron Ticket, please email pianistandrea@gmail.com your suggestions for music you’d like to hear. We look forward to seeing you at the concert and hopefully, together we’ll inhale the sound of music and exhale the sense of calm and peace.

Om Shanti,
Shankara aka Marc Leonard
