Pianist Tiffany Poon in front of a blue wall
Remy Holwick

‘an outstanding album from an engaging young star … Tiffany Poon is a verbal whirlwind of enthusiasms, ideas and insights’

International Piano

The emerging pianist presents a programme of Schumann, Ravel, Bach and Chopin, concluding with Chopin’s intricate 24 Preludes.

‘Pianist Tiffany Poon is one of those rare phenomena that come along once in every generation to upend our preconceptions,’ Bachtrack reported in November of last year.

Her debut album on Pentatone, Diaries: Schumann, released in February 2024, has amassed over four million streams to date and charted at number one on Apple Music Classical across four continents in addition to charting at number one on the Billboard Charts (Traditional Classical Albums).

Tiffany Poon has appeared with orchestras and in recital throughout the US, Canada, Europe and Australia since she was first accepted at the age of eight to the Juilliard pre-college programme, where she studied with Emanuel Ax and Joseph Kalichstein.

Tiffany Poon: London Debut is presented by the Southbank Centre & Askonas Holt

‘Tiffany Poon’s refined workmanship and intelligent musicality deserve respect and consideration’
