Wednesday 20 October 2021 to Thursday 30 December 2021

Join Anson Tang and Professor Nigel Clayton as they disclose the innermost emotions within a performer’s soul.

Through music, we all connect. It is a language of emotion that communicates across culture and ability. It is more than technique and beauty in harmony; it is also a personal adventure delivering emotions behind a musician’s growth.

‘Music as an Adventure’ is an online recital with storytelling, presented by the Hong Kong born-and-bred pianist Anson Tang, who uses a wheelchair, together with Nigel Clayton, Anson’s mentor and an experienced piano professor at the Royal College of Music (RCM), London. 

By presenting selected pieces from composers Franz Liszt, Gerald Finzi and others, the programme portrays Anson’s creative adventure and discovery in his journey of music abroad. Between each piece Anson will speak about how each work has influenced his education and experience. In addition to the recital, Professor Clayton will take part in a joint performance together with Anson, followed immediately by a sharing and discussion session.
