We are excited to be presenting all three of the 2018 Prize-winners in their Wigmore Hall débuts this week! A three-part concert series celebrates the achievements of our artists since their win in Leeds just over a year ago through our very special partnership with the UK’s premier chamber music venue – the sumptuous and unique Wigmore Hall.
A hugely enthusiastic sellout audience (which included Piano Royalty – Alfred Brendel, Mitsuko Uchida and Imogen Cooper) welcomed Eric Lu back to the city and we were very proud to announce the planned release of his forthcoming studio recording with Warner Classics, who have signed Eric to their prestigious roster. The disc will be available from 28th February 2020 and will feature works showcased in his Wigmore programme (more soon…). Thank you to the Jack Lyons Charitable Trust who have kindly supported this event.
An equally enthusiastic audience greeted Mario Haring in a programme which featured some of his Leeds repertoire which was particularly close to his heart. Listen to Mario’s interview on BBC Radio 3’s In Tune here and listen to his performances on medici.tv here.
Finally, Xinyuan Wang, Third Prize-winner in 2018 concludes the series with a programme of Schubert and Bartók, streamed live on medici.tv here as part of his digital Audience Award, which was voted for online by viewers.
