Event details:

Olivier Messiaen Vingt regards sur l'Enfant-Jésus

Tonight's single-work concert, a celebration of the centenary of Messiaen's birth, is an intense and overwhelming major piece of the piano repertoire. If you've never heard this work you are in for an unforgettable experience. Long, insistent, enthralling, gripping are words associated with performances, and the formidable international player Melvyn Tan's interpretation is a rare mastery
of the whole concept.

...a staggering performance of the vast piano cycle Vingt regards sur l'Enfant- Jésus...Tan unfolded its vast architecture with complete coherence from the opening to the final pages...Few standing ovations have ever been so richly deserved.
