22 Operas, 41 Symphonies, 27 Piano Concerti, 18 Piano Sonatas, 23 String Quartets, 36 Sonatas for piano and violin - all this and more created in just a short span of 35 years of life, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, born in Salzburg, continued to be prolific until the last year of his life in Vienna, when he produced some of his greatest works 'The Magic Flute', his Clarinet Concerto and the unfinished 'Requiem'.
Mozart 36 follows his journey as a young composer from age 8 with the first of his Sonatas for piano and violin to the last in 1788, when he was living at the centre of the Viennese musical world as the city's finest keyboard player and a hugely successful composer.

Join British pianist Sam Haywood and Singaporean solo violinist Tang Tee Khoon as TTK Grand Series embarks on this one and a half year journey through the complete 36 Sonatas for piano and violin by Mozart, and a selection of his iconic chamber works and concerti. Revel within this set of his mature Sonatas, chosen to kick off our Mozart 36 journey, on this first unique evening.
Sam Haywood regularly appears in many of the world’s major concert halls. The Washington Post hailed his ‘dazzling, evocative playing’ and ‘lyrical sensitivity’ and the New York Times his ‘passionate flair and sparkling clarity’. He embraces a wide spectrum of the piano repertoire and is equally at home as soloist and chamber musician. He has had a duo partnership with Joshua Bell since 2010 and has often performed with cellist Steven Isserlis.
After his early success in the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition, he went on to study in Vienna with Paul Badura-Skoda. His recordings include two critically-acclaimed solo albums for Hyperion Records and an album of Chopin’s music performed on the composer’s own Pleyel instrument. He is the Artistic Director of the UK’s annual Solent Music Festival and this year curated a series of concerts, broadcast on BBC radio, for the Leeds International Chamber Music Season. He is also a composer and the inventor of memorystars®, an aid for memorising music.
Tang Tee Khoon
Described as ‘a chamber musician of the highest order’, and a ‘national treasure’, her playing as ‘truly transcendent’, Tang Tee Khoon was named one of the 40 under 40 faces to watch by Prestige Singapore. She was the second-ever violinist to be awarded the loan of a J.B. Guadagnini violin c. 1750 by the National Arts Council in Singapore from 2009-2017.
Tee Khoon performs internationally as a recitalist and a chamber musician and has collaborated with musicians such as Midori, Hsin-Yun Huang, Ian Swenson, and members of the Emerson, Takács and Borromeo String Quartets. Her festival appearances include Seiji Ozawa’s International Music Academy in Switzerland and Open Chamber Music at Prussia Cove U.K..
Tee Khoon mentored with Donald Weilerstein in Boston and David Takeno in London U.K.
