Lane: Mozart, Field, Chopin & Smetana

Sun 9 June @ 16:00 - 17:00

$25 – $48

FANTAISIE

Piers Lane's recital is based around one of his favourite composers: Fredéric Chopin. The heart of the program is the F minor Fantaisie, with its dark suffering, its passionate nobility, its flights of fancy and extraordinary range. Mozart and, perhaps surprisingly, the Irishman John Field, were major influences on the Polish Chopin – and the Czech Smetana delightfully did for the polka what Chopin did for the mazurka and the polonaise. A recital blending the much-loved with the less familiar, revealing subtle connections and influences. But Piers will explain it all as he goes…

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.
