DAYS UNTIL 2024 COMPETITION
Since winning the 2021 Leeds International Piano Competition in such a spectacular way, also taking the Audience Prize and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Award, Alim’s career has rocketed.
Described as “one of the most fully-rounded pianists of today”, Israeli pianist Boris Giltburg enjoys a career that has taken him to all the great musical centres of the world. In this recital programme he contrasts the deep poetry and romanticism of Chopin’s Ballades with Prokofiev’s colourful suite from his ballet Romeo and Juliet and the brilliantly impressionistic Gaspard de la Nuit by Ravel.
The young Georgian pianist Mariam Batsashvili has made a speciality of the music of Liszt since winning the International Franz Liszt Piano Competition in 2014. She performs a programme of Liszt & Beethoven in her first appearance for the Leeds International Piano Series.
World Piano Day is celebrated on the 88th (for the 88 keys on a piano) day of the year which in 2022 is March 29th. Here at Leeds Piano, it's our favourite day of the year as we celebrate all things Piano and look back on our favourite memories over the past year....
Friday 18th March marks 6 months since our 2021 Competition. Take a look at what our Prize-winners have been up to since then . . .
