"Formidable technique and musicianship." THE GRAMOPHONE

"The most thoughtful, elegant, and refined of pianists."  THE GUARDIAN

Join AHE and Artistic Director Skye McIntosh as they present one of the world’s greatest forte-pianists, Melvyn Tan, in a program inspired by the beauty and romance of classical Paris.

Tan is soloist in Mozart’s keyboard concerto No. 18 K. 456, thought to be written for the blind Parisian pianist Maria Theresa von Paradis.

Audiences will also be treated to the Australian premiere of a symphony by the legendary C18th African Parisian violinist, director,  swordsman and composer - Chevalier de Saint-Georges along with Haydn’s Symphony No. 85  ‘La Reine’  (The Queen) - said to be so nicknamed as it was the favourite of the doomed Queen Marie Antoinette.

Melvyn Tan... the most thoughtful, elegant, and refined of pianists.
