Live piano music for wedding, 2 hours
I play, of course, the entire standard repertoire: “Here Comes the Bride”, “Canon in D” by Pachelbel, “Wedding March” by Mendelssohn, and so on. I also play other pieces that are used less often, and so it is your opportunity to add an individual touch to the music choice of your wedding ceremony. For example, the middle part from Chopin's Waltz in G-flat (which makes a wonderful processional), or a romantic “Swan” by Saint-Saens (his music was played at my own wedding, and has been my favorite ever since). You can find samples on my website http://www.alaskanpianist.com. For the reception I play a wide variety of styles: Arrangements of American, Italian, French, and Russian favorite songs and tunes, traditional and contemporary Waltzes of all sorts: Strauss, Chopin, Tchaikovsky, etc. (of course, waltzes are not only for dancing; they make an uplifting and inspiring background music as well) Jewish music: Instrumental Klezmer and Hassidic pieces, and Yiddish and Israelis songs Spanish music, from tangos to songs to concert pieces Light classical music Improvisations and public demands While I prefer to play on acoustic pianos, I don't depend on you owning or renting one: I have a good (and nice looking) Yamaha digital piano that allows me to play anywhere. Rates depend mostly of the length of the event and its location. Most often for the first 2 hours (a minimum) plus $100 for every extra hour. Discounts available in certain cases.
