Does music have to be smart or is it enough if it simply goes to the heart? This is the question that drives the Canadian pianist and entertainer Chilly Gonzales and musician Malakoff Kowalski. They will be arguing about questions of taste on the ARD Book Fair stage! Chilly Gonzales presents his first book with ENYA, and it will be available in bookstores from October 8, 2020. The same evening, Chilly Gonzales will continue on ARTE: The documentary film “Shut up and play the piano” traces the artistic biography of the entertainer.



Presented by the Frankfurt Book Fair in collaboration with ZDF/ARTE.
