London-based Australian pianist Piers Lane stands out as an emerging and highly versatile performer, at home equally in solo, chamber and concerto repertoire. In great demand as a soloist and collaborative artist, recent highlights include a performance of Busoni’s mighty piano concerto at Carnegie Hall, premieres of Carl Vine’s second Piano Concerto, written for him, with the Sydney Symphony and the London Philharmonic, and several sold-out solo recitals at Wigmore Hall.
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 including the BBC and ABC orchestra; the Australian Chamber Orchestra, Orchestre National de France and Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestras among many others.
Programme includes: Chopin: Impromtu No. 2 in F#Major; Tchaikovsky: Six Pieces on a Single Theme Op.21; Stravinsky: Trois mouvements de Petrouchka
