Join us for our 5th concert in the Salon with Ross Alley. The Tait Memorial Trust has great pleasure in announcing this year’s showcase of its awardees in an evening concert on 19th March kindly hosted by Leslie MacLeod-Miller at his home in Westminster.

The human voice is perhaps the most emotional of all musical instruments as we all correspond to its communication of joy, pain, laughter, anger, consolation, warning, and passion– a limitless lexicon of primal and sophisticated expressions that provoke an immediate response. Opera is drama made music and this year’s TMT “…in the Salon” concert will showcase vibrant young singers from Australia & New Zealand performing vocal works involving emotional conflict: drama!

It will be an unforgettable experience.


PIERS LANE (piano)

Wigmore Hall  –  Saturday, 2 February 2019, 7:30pm

A favourite with Wigmore audiences, Piers Lane plays a delightful, rarely-heard set of six Tchaikovsky pieces all on the same theme, their forms reflected in moving Bach and Chopin works in the first half, the whole topped off with Stravinsky’s own vibrant and virtuosic transcription of movements from Pétrouchka.

Wigmore Hall  –  Sunday, 3 February 2019, 7:30pm

Formed in 1995, the Australian quartet is named after the Romanian-born Australian chamber music enthusiast Richard Goldner. Here it joins with its pianist compatriot for Webern’s Brahmsian slow movement (1905) and Korngold’s 1921 quintet – an example of his lavish late- Romanticism.
