  Margaret Leng Tan - Toy Piano Player Thursday 20 March 2003  
She's been called the Thumbelina of piano. While other pianists may demand Steinways and Bluthners, Margaret Leng Tan has stunned audiences across the world with her virtuoso performances on the toy piano.

Margaret Leng Tan joins Jenni to explain why she feels so passionate about the music she can produce on the toy piano, and why it's bringing new audiences to works by avant-garde composers.
Margaret will be performing at a tribute concert for composer John Cage on 27 March at St George's Hall in Bristol
'The Art of the Toy Piano' CD by Margaret Leng Tan, published by Point Music, Cat. No: 2894563452
