The International Piano Series presents the most prestigious pianists on the concert platform, showcasing the talents of the grand masters alongside the best of a current generation of rising stars.
The 2018/19 season marked the 30th anniversary of the series, and continues with recitals from IPS favourites Angela Hewitt playing Beethoven and Bach, Maurizio Pollini playing Chopin and Debussy, and Cédric Tiberghien playing Mozart and Schumann. The series culminates in a weekend dedicated to the music of Stockhausen, with Pierre-Laurent Aimard and Tamara Stefanovich.
In 2019/20 we welcome global superstar Daniil Trifonov; Stephen Hough performs a thoughtful mix of Chopin, Busoni and Liszt; Paul Lewis concludes his multi-year exploration of the piano works of Haydn, Beethoven and Brahms; and Pierre-Laurent Aimard pairs Beethoven's mighty Hammerklavier Sonata with Charles Ives – plus more recitals from returning artists and new faces.
