We have come to associate the letter ‘B’ with many of the great composers, with Bach, Beethoven Brahms respectfully referred to as ‘The Three B’s’. Pianist Thomas Hecht follows pathways from the Old World to the New, drawing parallels to an American ‘B’, the neoclassic composer Samuel Barber, whose piano writing owes as much to the pithy sonatas of Beethoven as it does to the enriched sonorities of Brahms. We welcome back Thomas Hecht, founding Head of Piano Studies at the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music in Singapore.

“He is more of a poet than a showman…he reveals a tempered, lyrical approach far removed from the pyrotechnics of Horowitz but equally engaging in its own right.” Opus Magazine
