Medici Concerts: Piers Lane
Venue Conservatorium Theatre, Griffith University, South Bank, Brisbane
Dates 6 Mar 2011

Piers Lane’s sold-out 2010 Chopin Nocturnes by Candlelight recital beautifully evoked the intimate atmosphere of the Parisian salons of the nineteenth century. In a candlelit stage setting, Piers Lane the poet-pianist will charm the audience with these beautiful love-poems. These exquisite nocturnes with their heavenly melodies include the most famous of all, the serene and the tender E flat major and the ravishingly beautiful F sharp major.

The first half of the program includes delightful Schubert Waltzes, Brahms' lovely Four Piano Pieces Op 119 and Beethoven’s penultimate sonata, the glorious Op 110.

Piers Lane has a busy international concert career and is Artistic Director of the Australian Festival of Chamber Music.
