International Piano Series 2017/18

5 Oct 2017 - 6 Jun 2018

The International Piano Series is a celebration of supreme artistic excellence featuring the world’s leading pianists. With over 16 recitals per season it gives you a unique chance to see established names as well as providing a London platform for the most exciting and exceptional young talent.

We’re pleased to announce the launch of our International Piano Series 2017/18.

Young virtuosos

This year’s rising stars, Khatia Buniatishvili, Alice Sara Ott and Benjamin Grosvenor offer us a kaleidoscope of contrasting personalities and styles, while Bertrand Chamayou makes his International Piano Series debut in the opening concert of the season.

Music from the North

As part of our festival Nordic Matters, Víkingur Ólafsson makes his debut in this year’s series with Brahms’ Piano Sonata No.3 and its five movements containing echoes of Beethoven’s fifth symphony, alongside that most quintessential of Nordic performers, the Norwegian Leif Ove Andsnes.

The unmissable virtuosos

Enjoy a tremendous range of musical masterpieces while being thrilled by the virtuosity of world-famous figures such as Maurizio Pollini, Stephen Hough and Paul Lewis.

A new partnership

Two recitals continue Southbank Centre’s partnership with Mitsuko Uchida. Renowned for her outstanding interpretations of Schubert, this piano legend embarks on the first of her recitals featuring the piano sonatas, from the boundless energy of the G major Sonata to the emotional depths plumbed by the sonata in B major.

Offering a different perspective, Southbank Centre Artist in Residence, Pierre-Laurent Aimard, throws light on 20th century scores with his performance of Ligeti’s Etudes as part of a weekend to celebrate the composer’s music.
