Phenomenally talented pianist Steven Osborne performs music by Debussy and Prokofiev, vastly different composers who approached the piano in entirely different ways. For Debussy, the piano was a sensuous instrument; dreamy, colourful and picturesque. For Prokofiev, it was a colossus to be tamed; powerful, intense and percussive. What is common to both is tremendous virtuosity. Steven Osborne – appearing in recital, without orchestra – is sure to dazzle in this, his only Tasmanian appearance.
