Born in Singapore, Tian was the first graduate from the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music, finishing his Bachelor of Music with first class honors. He studied with Zhang Jin Min (Principal Bassoonist of the Singapore Symphony Orchestra) for three years at the Conservatory before heading off to the Berne University of the Arts for Konzertdiplom studies with Lyndon Watt (Principal Bassoonist of the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra).
Flute Recital by Jasper Goh
Flautist Jasper Goh’s farewell recital before his enlistment to arms provided some poignant but treasurable moments. Having thrilled with Lowell Liebermann’s ebullient Piccolo Concerto almost a year ago, his hour-long and well-balanced programme provided more of the same glitter.
