 Miniature Meets Monumental

Description

Legendary Singaporean pianist Margaret Leng Tan has been hailed as the 'diva of avant-garde pianism' (The New Yorker) and the 'queen of the toy piano' (The New York Times). Renowned for her interpretations of John Cage, Tan returns to Melbourne for an eclectic program on toy piano, piano and assorted sound objects.

The concert features a Satie miniature, Jed Distler's Minute Ring, Beatles classics reinterpreted on toy pianos and teapots, and Erik Griswold's Old MacDonald's Yellow Submarine performed on all manner of toys. The Australian premiere of Philip Glass’s early minimalist piano solo, How Now, is the centrepiece in this concert of maximal contrasts with the toy piano holding its own against its behemoth counterpart.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre.
