Mention Man Group plc and most people think of the Man Booker
Prize for literature.
The pianoMan project is the latest project funded
by Man Group plc, the global provider of alternative investment products and agency
brokerage. In association with Richard Meyrick, an internationally acclaimed concert
pianist, Man Group is sponsoring a uniquely and ambitious scheme. Over the next
two years Richard will travel thousands of miles to visit over seventy, carefully
selected, schools and colleges throughout the UK.
A natural raconteur,
a born teacher and an intensely physical performer with virtuosic pianistic skills,
Richard has a wonderful gift the ability to convey his love of great music to
others. Over an afternoon and evening he will introduce young people to live classical
music through informal workshops and master-classes for selected music students.
His visit will culminate in a fund-raising concert for pupils, parents and friends,
with proceeds going to the school s own music department. This is your opportunity
to hear some of the world s great musical heritage performed by one of Britain
s most exciting pianists.
The inaugural concert in London was filmed and
recorded on DVD and features Richard in conversation with John Suchet, the celebrated
television journalist. He uncovers details of Richard's early career, his successful
fight against throat cancer, his unique teaching methods, his triumphant return
to the concert platform and his dedication to the pianoMan project. Copies of
the DVD will be made available to all the participating schools.
