Melvyn Tan (b1956)

As a twelve-year-old boy, Melvyn Tan travelled to England where he studied at the Yehudi Menuhin School with Marcel Ciampi, Vlado Perlemuter and Nadia Boulanger. At the age of twenty-two Tan went to the Royal College of Music in London where he studied piano with Angus Morrison and harpsichord with Millicent Silver and Ruth Dyson. It was at this time that Tan began to study performance practice, and from 1980 devoted himself to the fortepiano and harpsichord. In the early 1980s Tan performed regularly in the United Kingdom with the Academy of Ancient Music, the London Classical Players and the English Chamber Orchestra. In 1985 Tan toured the United States for the first time and two years later won critical acclaim in Europe, America, Canada, Australia and Japan for his performances of Beethoven’s piano concertos with the London Classical Players and Roger Norrington.

During the early 1990s Tan founded the New Mozart Ensemble in London and he appears with them regularly. He has performed at many festivals including those of Bath, Holland and San Francisco, as well as at the Beethoven Experience with the London Classical Players in Purchase, New York. During the 1990 season Tan appeared in France, Germany, Japan, Australia, San Francisco, Vancouver and at Carnegie Hall in New York, and in 1991 made his debut at the Paris Opera. After 1996 he reverted more often to the modern piano in recital.
