They have also been playing duets together for nearly 40 years and in the concert bring us music for 4 hands by Mozart, Schubert, Hindemith, Ravel and Brahms.
A piano recital with a difference. Callum, Matthew & Rose McLachlan, the children of internationally renowned pianists Murray McLachlan and Kathryn Page, are emerging talents in their own right and are already winning prizes and playing at major venues.
