Zoeken op instrument (Piano's en Keyboards)
- Cor Bakker
Bijna had Cor Bakker gekozen voor de radiotechniek, in plaats van de piano. Zijn muziekleraar Niek Verkruisen liet dit niet gebeuren en maakte voor Cor een afspraak met zijn idool Louis van Dijk. Voor Van Dijk was er geen twijfel mogelijk: Cor 'moest' naar het conservatorium. Het werd het Sweelinck Conservatorium in Amsterdam, waar Cor in 1984 cum laude afstudeerde.

- Antonio Faraò
Antonio Faraò, one of the most interesting jazz pianists of the last generation, has become an official “Yamaha Artist”
“I'm not often surprised by the recordings of musicians the way I was overwhelmed the ﬁrst time I heard Antonio Faraò on one of his recent CD's. What amazed me was what I felt inside of me. There is so much warmth, conviction and power to his playing. I was immediately attracted to his harmonic conception, the joy of his rhythms and swing feel and the grace and ingenuity of his melodic improvisational lines. Antonio is not only a ﬁne pianist but a great one.” (Herbie Hancock)
