Fabulous performance. We were truly and totally mesmerized. What a combination of talent and perseverance! Will remain deeply rooted in memory for a while. Our home grown Maestro indeed!

Tanay played pieces by Beethoven, Mozart and Rachmaninov during the course and showed a remarkable aptitude and gift at the piano. He has a very natural musicality that was most evident in the Mozart sonata which was played with real awareness of style and some refined pianistic control. Tanay's love of music and obvious desire to improve and realize his tremendous potential was a joy to observe.

Professor, Keyboard and Collaborative Piano, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland


We were very struck by your playing and genuine pianistic potential. Fali and I were also very pleased at how quick and responsive you were in your lessons. I was very pleased with your playing of the Beethoven. In particular, you caught the excitement and drive of the Sonata.

Aaron Shorr

Head of Keyboard and Collaborative Piano, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland


He was an excellent student with a wonderfully humble and very enthusiastic character. He always contributed in workshops and performed fantastically in the two composer concerts at the end of each week. He worked exceptionally hard and developed his own style of writing in an impressive way. I can't think of anyone that better deserved the scholarship that he was given. I believe he has a bright future ahead of him and I'm gratefiil that I had the chance to help him on his way.

Emma-Ruth Richards

Composition Teacher at Chetham ’s Summer School


Natural musicality, warm personality and integrity were presented in his performances of S.Rachmaninov Prelude op. 23/5 and L.van Beethoven Sonata op.13. During the lessons his work has been marked by responsiveness, sensitivity and seriousness. I was pleased to notice an indubitable progress Mr. Tanayjoshi made during his participation at the Summer School.

I consider Tanayjoshi to be the most gifted student I worked with during this year's Chethams Summer School and Festival for Pianists. Conditions have clearly been far from ideal for him but he is blessed with great determination backed with an exceptional technical facility and musical temperament.
