2016 Marks the 10 year anniversary of the Charl du Plessis Trio and for this reason I am thinking of a new DVD/Film project to celebrate this first decade. I must be one of the luckiest musicians alive to have spent so many memorable moments on and off stage with Werner Spies and Hugo Radyn. Our previous DVD release Pimp My Piano was so exciting and as always a very taxing experience. For this reason I have not been thinking about a follow-up project since now.
Looking forward sometimes unconsciously causes me to look back and then I remembered the first music video we made about 6 years ago when we recorded our Shanghai Brunch album. Apart from hair, fashion and weight which constantly changes (thank goodness!!) I remember this project as a happy encounter with out ever faithful producer and recording engineer Peter Auret. The other constant factor in my career thus far has been my trusted piano of choice and as a Steinway Artist I am very fortunate to have the support of this wonderful company all over the world.
I hope you will find our new release as exciting as this was way back when. Watch this space for more information about the new releases due in 2016.
