International Piano Series

Our 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.

In 2019/20, Stephen Hough performs a mix of Chopin, Busoni and Liszt; Maurizio Pollini pitches the romantic against the avant-garde; and Pierre-Laurent Aimard pairs Beethoven with the experimental Charles Ives. 

The 2020/21 season brings two recitals from Associate Artist Víkingur Ólafsson; a performance of Liszt’s dramatic Sonata in B minor from Denis Matsuev; and in the final year of his three-year Residency, a continuation of Pierre-Laurent Aimard’s focus on Beethoven and the Avant Garde – plus more recitals from returning artists and new faces.
