Piers Lane: Musical Geniuses

Classical Piano Music by Mozart, Beethoven & Chopin

London-based Australian pianist Piers Lane is one of the most inquisitive and engaging live performers of his generation. In great demand as soloist and collaborative artist, he continues his longstanding partnership with violinist Tasmin Little, clarinettist Michael Collins and the Goldner String Quartet.

Five times soloist at the BBC Proms in London’s Royal Albert Hall, Piers Lane’s concerto repertoire exceeds ninety works and has led to engagements with many of the world’s great orchestras. He’s been the Artistic Director of the Australian Festival of Chamber Music since 2007 and also directed the annual Myra Hess Day at the National Gallery in London from its inception in 2006 until 2013.

Many composers have written for Piers Lane and he has premiered works by Brett Dean, Dave Heath, Colin Matthews, Richard Mills, Carl Vine, Benjamin Wallfisch and Malcolm Williamson, among others.

In the Queens Diamond Jubilee Birthday Honours, he was made an Officer in the Order of Australia (AO) for distinguished services to the arts as pianist, mentor and organiser.

In this very special concert, Piers Lane presents a beautiful program of works by classical greats Mozart, Beethoven and Chopin:

MOZART: SONATA IN Bb MAJOR K333
BEETHOVEN: SONATA IN F MINOR OP 57 (APPASSIONATA)
CHOPIN: 4 SCHERZI

“It’s a pleasure to watch Lane, his energy firmly focused in marvellously expressive hands. His crystal-clear finger work produces bravura escapades across the keyboard while also lavishing care and attention on the simplest of melodies.” – The Age
