PIERS LANE PERFORMS CHOPIN'S NOCTURNES
Maleny Arts Council is delighted to present internationally acclaimed concert pianist Piers Lane, in recital in the Maleny Community Centre playing the all of Chopin's nocturnes.
London-based Australian pianist Piers Lane has a worldwide reputation as an engaging, searching and highly versatile performer, at home equally in solo, chamber, and concerto repertoire. Five times soloist at the BBC Proms, his wide-ranging concerto repertoire exceeds one hundred works and has led to engagements with many of the world’s great orchestras. Festival appearances have included Aldeburgh, Bard, Bath Mostly Mozart, Bergen, Cheltenham, Como Autumn Music, Prague Spring, Rockport, La Roque d’Anthéron, Ruhr Klavierfestival, Schloss vor Husum, Seattle and the Chopin festivals in Warsaw, Duszniki-Zdrój, Mallorca and Paris.
He has performed in over forty countries, highlights including annual Wigmore Hall solo recitals and concerto performances in London’s major halls and at Carnegie Hall, including a performance of the mighty Busoni Concerto.
Piers first performed the complete Nocturnes by Chopin in 2010 for the Chopin Society in London as part of their celebration of the bicentenary of Chopin's birth.
Since then Piers’ recital of Chopin’s Nocturnes, in part or full, has become one of his most popular programs and is in high demand with audiences around the world.
The 21 Nocturnes of Chopin are regarded as some of the finest and most elegant works ever written for piano. They cover a wide expressive range, from dreamy lyricism to ardent passion, from moments of tender intimacy to explosions of intense energy.
120 minutes including a 20 minute interval.
