He is also Artistic Director of both the Australian Festival of Chamber Music and the Sydney International Piano Competition.

In this, his most extensive Australian tour, Piers Lane presents a spellbinding evening of popular works by one of the best loved composers of the Romantic era, in the magical atmosphere of a stage bathed in candlelight.

Audiences will be transported to a world of enchantment in this very special recital, which is proudly presented by Andrew McKinnon.
