  • Joseph Tong piano

Following studies at Wells Cathedral School, the Royal Academy of Music, Christ's College Cambridge, and privately with Piers Lane, the pianist has carved out an individual niche for himself among the most talented musicians of his generation. Sibelius is one of his specialities: the 1914 collection The Trees was included on his first album devoted to the composer’s music, while David Matthews’s piece was commissioned especially to be heard alongside it. The autograph score of Schubert's 'Wanderer' Fantasy is dated November 1822, so tonight we celebrate its 200th anniversary.
