Classical series with world renowned musicians

I'm most excited about today because we will have world renowned pianist Melvyn Tan performing on the Portsmouth Guildhall stage as part of the Portsmouth Chamber Music Series.

You don't get to hear Melvyn Tan in concert normally unless you go to London, in concert halls like the Wigmore Hall. We're fortunate to be able to listen to him in Portsmouth!


Melvyn Tan at the Wigmore Hall, 5 October 2014
Tan’s easy asides to the audience matched by his ingratiating engagement with the music, the beautiful sound that he produces, and the moments (…) of visionary grandeur – he is quite the shaman-showman. This exceptional recital cooled down with a dip into Debussy’s ‘Poissons d’or.’

The Portsmouth Guildhall puts on some exciting musicians for their concert series, whether classical or the popular kind. Only last week we had a foot-tapping concert by the National Youth Jazz Orchestra. It was smashing to see so many people interested in jazz were able to go to a performance of that calibre.

Don't miss Melvyn Tan today and in June we will have clarinettist Emma Johnson perform in the same series. I'll tell you more about that later!


Melvyn Tan's concert:
Date: Monday 27 April 2015

Venue: Portsmouth Guildhall, Guildhall Square, Portsmouth PO1 2AB
