‘Mercurial’, ‘one in a million’, ‘poetry of feeling’ – just some of acclaim heaped on artists appearing at this season’s International Piano Series.
This is your chance to experience the piano world’s brightest new talents alongside some of its best-loved stars.
Highlights include Mitsuko Uchida, Stephen Kovacevich, Angela Hewitt and Yundi.
New talent includes the celebrated young Benjamin Grosvenor, aged only 19, with his Southbank Centre recital debut. We also welcome to the series the first appearances by recent winners of the Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, the London International Piano Competition and the Queen Elisabeth Competition, Brussels.
From the baroque intricacies of Bach to the ecstatic modern mysticism of Messiaen; from the gritty power of Prokofiev’s War Sonatas to the aching beauty of Schubert and Brahms, there’s music here to suit all pianistic preferences.
