“..the most thoughtful, elegant and refined of pianists… one of those marvellous concerts where everything seemed to illuminate everything else.” The Guardian
Bath Philharmonia and pianist Melvyn Tan, one of the world’s most critically acclaimed Mozart interpreters, present a unique double bill of two of the greatest piano concertos ever written.
Exploration, insight and imagination are vital ingredients in Melvyn Tan’s blend of artistic attributes. He established his international reputation in the 1980s with pioneering performances on fortepiano and continues to cast fresh light on music conceived for the piano’s early and modern forms.
From the intimacy and fragility of Piano Concerto No. 23 to the sublime beauty of Piano Concerto No. 21 (widely known as the Elvira Madigan concerto), this poignant concert will let your mind soar and capture your heart.
