The iconic French pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet has been wowing audiences worldwide for the last twenty years, and it’s a particular privilege to welcome him to Leeds with a recital programme mixing French music and Bartók, in both of which he excels. His recordings of the complete piano music of Debussy, as of the concertos of Bartók, have won him numerous international awards and wide acclaim.
Following the huge success of this new initiative in 2021/22, we once again bring some of the world’s greatest pianists to The Venue, Leeds Conservatoire across the autumn and winter months. They are a truly international group, from Argentina, France, Russia, Kazakhstan, Israel and Georgia, and the repertoire is a very rich mix of great masterpieces, with threads of Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann, and Liszt running through the season. Three of the musicians featured are at the forefront of a very exciting younger generation of pianists, including the 2021 competition winner Alim Beisembayev.
We are delighted once again to partner with Leeds International Concert Season and Leeds Conservatoire to bring you what we know will be a veritable treasure trove of fantastic pianism.
