ABOUT

Black & White DJ

'pianist Dominic John has inexhaustible energy, phenomenal technique, bravura- and at least four arms. The performance is astounding'

 

International Piano Magazine

 

'He has a masterful technique that is more than equal to Busoni's treacherous double notes and rapid passagework and embraces Busoni's parody of Chopin's "Minute Waltz" with grotesque elegance.'
