In this recital of Romantic piano masterpieces, Tristan Lee explores the conflicting spirit of human nature. This can be heard from the very opening bars of Beethoven’s late Piano Sonata Op. 90. The two movements of this sonata were described by Beethoven’s biographer Schindler as ‘a struggle between the heart and the head, and a conversation with the beloved’. Chopin’s haunting Nocturne Op. 48 No. 1 follows, which contrasts immense beauty and lyricism against ferocious octave passages. Liszt knew these works well and performed them regularly, and their influence can be heard in his gigantic Sonata in B minor. The extra musical narrative of which is often considered to be the legend of Faust and the moral conflicts it represents.

Tristan Lee is an Australian pianist internationally recognized, and critically acclaimed, for his distinctive recitals and recordings. He has played in major venues in Australia, Europe and China, including the Wigmore Hall, and St Martin in the Fields, London, amongst many others. His mentors have included François-Frédéric Guy and Leslie Howard. Tristan Lee is a graduate of the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester (MMus), and the University of Melbourne (PhD), where he currently teaches piano.
