Piers Lane

London-based Australian pianist Piers Lane stands out as an engaging and highly versatile performer, at home equally in solo, chamber and concerto repertoire. In recent seasons Piers Lane performed three concerti at Carnegie Hall, and world premieres of Carl Vine’s second Piano Concerto and Double Piano Concerto Implacable Gifts, both written for him.

Highlights of the 2019/20 season include engagements with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, performances of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No.1 with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra under Sir Andrew Davis, a Musica Viva national tour of Australia with the Goldner String Quartet, appearances at Bard Music Festival in the US, a solo recital at Wigmore Hall, and duo performances with violinist Tasmin Little throughout the UK.

Five times soloist at the BBC Proms, Piers Lane’s concerto repertoire exceeds one hundred works. He has recorded over sixty CDs, primarily with Hyperion Records. His most recent releases are piano concertos by Ferdinand Ries, a sonata disc with violinist Tasmin Little, and chamber works by Borodin, the ninth disc he has recorded with the Goldner String Quartet.

Piers is the Artistic Director of the Sydney International Piano Competition of Australia. In the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Honours, he was made an Officer in the Order of Australia (AO).
