An internationally acclaimed piano solist, Pascal also plays a duo with dutch violinist Anne-Marie Volten, is part of the czech/luxemburg ALEA Piano Trio, performs with Xenia Pestova in the Pestova/Meyer Piano Duo, and is a member of the Luxemburg-based modern music ensemble United Instruments of Lucilin. He has twice been a Gold Medal prizewinner in the Luxemburgish National Competition For Young Soloists. Pascal plays pieces such as Karlheinz Essl’s legendary “Kalimba” on a Schoenhut baby grand.

A few years later I played George Crumb’s River of Life in the percussion quartet I played with, ordered a baby grand from Schoenhut so I could have a decent instrument with the required range. That’s when I realized you could actually make music on these little things! The audience loved it…..”
