By clicking on "Go to livestream" a window will open where you can watch the concert free of charge and without any registration. However, we kindly ask you to support this project via "Pay as you wish". Thank you & welcome to the real & virtual club!

I have been friends with Kirk Lightsey for decades. I got to know him personally in Saalfelden in 1988, alongside the wonderful singer Özay. He was a guest at the "old" P&B with a wide variety of formations, and of course also at the "new" establishment. On the occasion of his 80th birthday, we reserved him a suite at the Hotel Imperial - without informing him in advance. I picked him up from the airport, a porter held the car door open in front of the hotel and the director took the opportunity to greet the master pianist personally. There could not have been a bigger surprise for Captain Kirk (as we call him). He thanked us with a fantastic concert that evening. Now we portray the versatile pianist in very different settings. Welcome back, Kirk! CH
