Having evolved from child prodigy to classical superstar, classical pianist Simon Tedeschi is often described by respected critics and musical peers as “one of the finest artists in the world”, and in a stunning coup returns to perform for Music By The Sea.

Those attending will be privy to the same musical majesty enjoyed by audiences that have included Their Royal Highnesses The Crown Prince and Princess of Denmark, Vladimir Putin, George W Bush, Nelson Mandella and the Dalai Lama. .

The book of his life is an interesting read – metaphorically speaking – with Tedeschi giving his debut performance of a Mozart Piano Concerto at the Sydney Opera House when he was nine, playing for Pavarotti at 13, lauded as an international award-winning concert pianist since he was 18, and now currently signed at the top end to Sony Music Australia.
