Violinist Peter Tanfield, pianist Shan Deng to perform in Bunbury on September 5

World renowned violinist Peter Tanfield and acclaimed pianist Shan Deng will entertain and inspire Bunbury audiences next month.

The pair will visit the Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre for one not-to-be-missed show on Thursday, September 5, at 7pm.

Performing in the Cube Theatre, Tanfield and Deng will present a repertoire from some of the world's greatest composers.

Tanfield said they were looking forward to performing in the South-West.

"The programme is one of sensual delight, grandeur, and intensity," he said.

"We hope very much to transport people into different and wonderful worlds of feeling and imagery.

"The works are all important to Shan and myself. We love them all, and believe they are all connected on many levels."

Among their favourite works, Tanfield and Deng will deliver a piece from revolutionary tango musician and composer Astor Piazzolla.

"Shan loves tango music and dancing, so we wanted to include this element," Tanfield said.

"Piazzolla is also the only composer on the programme who I have met and with whom I have played.

The show will also include pieces from Clause Debussy, Eugene Ysaye, Edvard Greig, and Maurice Ravel.

The concert will finish up with the Australian premiere of On Jasmine, from composer Maria Grenfell.

Born in England, Tanfield is known around the world as a soloist and chamber musician.

He has appeared in many major orchestras including the BBC Philharmonic, Australian String Quartet, and Scottish Chamber Orchestra.

Currently teaching at the Tasmanian Conservatorium of Music, Tanfield was a finalist in the 2008 Australian of the Year Awards.

He was recognised for his efforts in communicating the joy of music making.

Since winning Best Australian Pianist at the 2000 Sydney International Piano Competition, Deng has toured overseas as a soloist with the Queensland Philharmonic Orchestra.

She has also appeared in many of the Australian Symphony Orchestras.

In demand across the globe as a concert artist and an adjudicator, Deng currently teaches piano at the University of Tasmania.

Prior to Peter Tanfield and Shan Deng in Recital, BREC will host the Act-Belong-Commit YOH Fest on Thursday, August 29.

The annual initiative sees students create and perform their own dance sequences, drama plays, or art pieces based on a relevant theme.
