Sabine Weyer

Written by Dimitrios Machairidis

“When the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg talks everybody listens,” they say in the European Union. The tiny country and one of the founders of the European Union, is one of the stronger factors of the European integration procedure. This time however, Luxembourg showed its remarkable cultural power. Visitors to the Acropolis Museum in Athens, Greece, designed by the architects Bernard Tschumi and Michalis Fotiadis, listened to the piano recital of Sabine Weyer, the young pianist from Luxembourg. Her brilliant performance filled the spaces of the iconic museum with the music of Chopin, Liszt, Debussy and Ruiz de Corral.

“It is a very special feeling playing the piano next to the beauty of the Acropolis. I really feel honored to be able to blend music with the statues and the rest of the Greek art of the Acropolis Museum,” Weyer told Hollywood on the Potomac. Held in collaboration with the Embassy of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg in Greece, the piano recital was a joyful surprise to the visitors of the Museum. As they were strolling through the perfection of the marbles of the Parthenon they were listening to the notes of Sabine Weyer’s piano playing.
