Piers Lane and Queensland Symphony Orchestra mark 40 years of extraordinary music!

Globally-famed pianist Piers Lane comes home to celebrate 40-year anniversary with Queensland Symphony Orchestra 

London-based Australian pianist Piers Lane is one of the most inquisitive and engaging live performers of his generation. Most recently, he has performed Busoni’s mighty piano concerto at Carnegie Hall, premiered Carl Vine’s second Piano Concerto, written for him, with Sydney Symphony and London Philharmonic, and sold-out Wigmore Hall for his performance of Chopin’s complete Nocturnes. NEXT UP – he is headed to Brisbane for three extraordinary music events with QUEENSLAND SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA. 

The two concerts and an In-Conversation celebrate an incredible milestone for both Piers Lane and Queensland Symphony Orchestra – Piers Lane’s 40 year anniversary of first performing with the Orchestra. The events are a major highlight of the 70th anniversary of Queensland Symphony Orchestra in 2017. 

On Thursday 12 October, Queensland Symphony Orchestra’s In Conversation evening will give music lovers a rare opportunity to listen to Piers Lane as he talks about his career, his favourite pieces of music, concert halls he has played in, and his fondest memories of the Orchestra. 

On Friday 13 October as part of the Morning Masterworks program, and the following evening as a Maestro concert, Piers Lane will star doing what he does best; commanding the keyboard as soloist with the Orchestra under the baton of Mexican conductor Enrique Arturo Diemecke. 

Piers Lane will perform one of his definitive works - the ultra-romantic Moszkowski Piano Concerto (if you love Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov and Chopin then this is for you). To close both concerts, one of the glories of Czech music - Dvořák’s Symphony No.7; a work of great Slavonic beauty delving the depths of his soul.  

Thursday 12 October from 5.30pm for 6pm, Queensland Symphony Orchestra Studio, South Bank
