Margaret Leng Tan Collection

Photograph of Margaret Leng Tan, pianistMargaret Leng Tan, referred to as "a diva of avant-garde pianism" by the New Yorker, is renowned for pushing the parameters of conventional piano. Her work with with the toy piano is particularly notable and has brought her much acclaim. Her first toy piano performance was in 1993 (performing John Cage's "Suite for Toy Piano") and has led other composers to add to the now-broadening repertoire of toy piano compositions. Born in Singapore, Tan now resides in Brooklyn when she is not touring internationally. Tan is also the first woman to graduate with a doctorate in music from the Juilliard School.
