Horsepower Performances - The Time Journey of the Pianist Markus Groh (working title)
The German pianist Markus Groh lives in Berlin and New York and usually shuttles between the continents. However, in 2010 he radically changes speed and goes on an unusual concert tour in a carriage drawn by two horses. His equipment includes a precious replica of a 1837 hammerclavier. During his adventurous tour Markus Groh wants to cunjure up connotations of the days of Chopin and Schumann - musically as well as physically.
