Fantaisie – Melvyn Tan Live!
CultureLink arranged the historic and emotional home-coming debut of international acclaimed pianist Melvyn Tan at a sold-out concert at the Esplanade Concert Hall on 19 Jan 2011.
Singapore-born Melvyn has built a formidable international reputation with a series of groundbreaking performances and recordings on the fortepiano and the modern piano. From the Yehudi Menuhin School to the concert halls of the world, Melvyn has travelled an extraordinary musical journey that includes performing the complete cycles of the Beethoven Concertos and Sonatas, Mozart Sonatas, Debussy Préludes and Chopin Préludes. His recent concert appearances included performances with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Concertgebouw, and the Edinburgh International Festival.
After a 30-year absence from Singapore, Melvyn finally made a triuphant return and has since been a regular feature of the Singapore music scene, contributing as a teacher and performer with the city’s major music institutions. He is currently an Artist-in-Residence at the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music.
