Australian pianist Piers Lane demonstrates his versatility and poetic best in a programme all about connections: Chopin idolised Bach and in turn inspired the Russian composers Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky.

Opening with Bach’s Prelude and Fugue in F sharp minor and a selection of Chopin’s best piano works, their probing and moving nature are mirrored in the forms used in Tchaikovsky’s rarely heard Six Pieces on a single theme. Stravinsky’s colourful Trois mouvements de Petrouchka brings the recital to a dazzling climax.

Lane is equally at home in solo, chamber and concerto repertoire. His concerto repertoire alone exceeds ninety-five works and has led to engagements with many of the world’s great orchestras and conductors, including five performances at the BBC Proms.

“He dazzled us throughout not only with his virtuoso response but also with the poetry he found in the quieter variants”
