© Piano on the Rocks 2020
Piano on the Rocks International Festival was created in 2016 on the initiative of Duo MusicAleph, by pianist
Sandrine Erdely-Sayo and narrator Elizabeth Peña, who share a common passion for music, literature, poetry and for the
magical city of Sedona, Arizona. This festival brings renowned artists and competiton winners to the City of Light.
This festival explores the interconnection between solo piano literature, storytelling and literature. Its mission is to create a
fusion between music and literature: to explore literature through music and music through literature, to offer musical
performances of the highest quality that are accessible to and enjoyable by all, and to build bridges across diverse cultures.
This year festival is inspired by the novel of French Writer Jean Giono: "Le Chant du Monde", a lyrical hymn to
nature and life where music and nature enhance each other.
