Flat whites with the Skride Piano Quartet

My week started in New Zealand with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra where I somehow feel very much at home- so far away from home. Must be the fine music-making and the friendly people! Meanwhile I am on tour with the girl band of the Skride Piano Quartet, visiting Sydney, Newcastle, Adelaide, Canberra, Perth, Melbourne and Hobart. We are enjoying the Australian spring (Berlin’s November weather is far away now) and try to cure our jet lags with the ever so tasty flat whites!


About Julian Steckel

“As an interpreter, I’ve started trusting my inner life more and letting the audience in. It’s a kind of vulnerability that makes you stronger.”

Written music is potential energy that a performer must unleash. Audiences can tell if a musician really feels that energy, or if their expression is second-hand. When Julian plays, he is sharing something fragile and alive.
