On Friday, January 25th 2013 at Disneyland’s Hyperion Theater in Anaheim, Ca, a group of Yamaha dealers will get to enjoy the man and the music of Elton John. The instrument company will be celebrating is 125th anniversary.
Elton says of the concert: “I’m constantly astonished by the inventive skills and versatility of the Yamaha team. Not only have they built all my touring pianos for the past 20 years, as well as the wonderful Million Dollar Piano that resides at Caesars Palace, but they’ve also now perfected the RemoteLivetechnology, which means that effectively, I can perform the concert live in Anaheim on January 25, live across the Internet and also live in venues worldwide–all at the same time! I am both proud and grateful to be a Yamaha artist and to enjoy the fruits of Yamaha’s amazing expertise.”
Using Yamaha’s groundbreaking technology, DisklavierTV, the technology will be reproducing the piano onstage with a 70-piece orchestra which will be streamed live over the Internet and simultaneously to remote Disklaviers in many countries around the world.
Elton John’s actual piano keystrokes will then be recreated, in real time on each of the remote instruments, while the entire orchestra is seen and heard on adjacent monitors.
“Elton John is one of the most successful and influential music makers of our time, and Yamaha is thrilled to bring him to a global audience in this history making manner,” said Chris Gero, vice president of Yamaha Entertainment Group of America, which is producing the event. “This exciting event will also demonstrate how Yamaha DisklavierTV is forever changing the way in which a live piano concert can be enjoyed in real time around the world.”
