About Our Guest Musician: Tau Wey, Pianist

Tau Wey enjoys performing unusual yet captivating music. His eclectic repertoire is as likely to include fugues as folk music, sonatas as songs, and rondos as rags. The music he plays branches out into myriad directions, making connections to the sound worlds that people inhabit.

Born in Taiwan, Tau subsequently lived in Germany and then in England. After reading music at Cambridge, he studied with Yonty Solomon and Douglas Finch at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, and with Jacob Lateiner at Mannes College of Music in New York.

He was awarded First Prize in the Beethoven Piano Society of Europe Competition.

He gave his London debut solo recital at Blackheath Halls in 2006 and his overseas debut at the Music Forum in Taipei the following year. He has made appearances on Radio 3, at the Aldeburgh Festival and at the Royal Albert Hall as part of the BBC Proms season.

Tau is currently Head of Keyboard at Sevenoaks School and a piano tutor on the Kent International Piano Course.

After entertaining us in 2013 as a part of a two-piano duo, he pays a return visit to Esher, this time in a solo capacity, and the core of his programme will be the ever popular ‘Pictures at an Exhibition’ by Mussorgsky

Programme For Tau Wey’s Concert

Pictures at an Exhibition is nowadays best known in the orchestral version by Ravel. However, it is the original version for piano with its powerful immediacy and potent crudeness that we are going to hear today. Mussorgsky composed Pictures as a memorial to his friend, the Russian artist Viktor Hartmann, who had died in 1873 at age 39. Shortly after the artist’s death, Mussorgsky visited a retrospective exhibit of Hartmann’s sketches, stage designs, and architectural studies and captured the experience imaginatively in music.

Ravel’s Pavane pour une infante défunte also has a double life as an orchestral piece. It is a beautifully evocative dance in the neo-classical style, and inspired by a picture of a little dancing princess by Velazquez.

Ginastera was one of the most important Argentine composers. The Danzas Argentinas, though they do not relate to pictures and have not been orchestrated, are wonderfully descriptive pieces ideally written for the virtuosic medium of the piano.
