About Me

"What separates the piano from other instruments?" "How does one control the sound of a piano?"
"How do great composers for piano proceed so that their work are able to touch us so deep?"
Those are some of the questions I ask myself regularly, for the possibilities that offer this beautiful instrument fascinate me, and my passion for it grows more day by day.
My name is Robinson, I am 27, and I will try to share that passion with you, whatever goals you have. After 3 years in New York, I am back to my hometown Geneva to work as a pianist, composer and educator.
