Having recently graduated from the University of Queensland, Hong Xiang is now making a return to the stage in Singapore. Besides his degree majoring in music, he also has a Diploma in music from the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts.
Hong Xiang was a Finalist in the inaugural Ars-Nova piano competition in Singapore. He has been featured as the soloist in performances with ensembles such as the ADDO arts company and Braddell Heights SymphonyOrchestra. In the first Piano Concerto Festival in Singapore, Hong Xiang performed Mozart’s K488 (piano concerto no.23 in A-major).
Hong Xiang has coached with reputed local teachers such as Ms Lena Chng and Mr Benjamin Loh. Most notably, over the past decade, he was taught by the (currently) retired concert pianist and Steinway Artist, Tedd Joselson.
Chien Tat started learning the piano at the age of 7, under the tutelage of Ho Lee Lian at Cristofori Music School. He then proceeded to study under famous pianists such as Ong Lip Tat and Tedd Joselson. In his youth, Chien Tat was a semi-finalist in Singapore’s National Piano and Violin Competition.
Chien Tat is a seasoned performer, having taken part in numerous concerts and competitions in his time at Cristofori and NAFA. Since then, he has also given a solo recital at the Esplanade Recital Studio and has performed as the soloist with orchestras such as the NAFA orchestra and more recently, the ADDO Arts Company Orchestra where he played Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No.1. Chien Tat achieved distinction in his DipABRSM Piano Performance.
His repertoire includes major piano pieces from the Romantic period, such as Balakirev’s notoriously difficult Islamey, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No.3 and Prokofiev’s Piano Sonata No.7 and 8. Most of all, he loves playing Liszt’s works, such as the Hungarian Rhapsodies, B-minor Sonata and DanteSonata to name a few.
