London Piano Festival

October 7th to October 9th at Kings Place

The London Piano Festival is a brand new celebration of the piano created by Katya Apekisheva and Charles Owen. These two highly-acclaimed pianists have enjoyed extensive performing careers both as soloists, chamber musicians and as a widely-admired duo partnership. Their shared love of the instrument has led them to curate this weekend especially for the city’s many piano lovers.

With such an enormously diverse, endlessly-fascinating repertoire to choose from, the possibilities for exciting programming are endless. This wealth of choice will be reflected throughout the eight concerts that have been created for this, the inaugural festival. The music will range from Bach, Busoni and Rachmaninoff through to Messiaen and Piazzolla. A particular highlight will be the world premiere of a new two-piano work by the American composer Nico Muhly.

To present those works, Charles and Katya have brought together some of the world’s leading pianists. Artists will include the legendary Alfred Brendel lecturing on Liszt, Kathryn Stott performing her signature French repertoire, Noriko Ogawa bringing the joys of piano music to the younger generation, and Julian Joseph treating us to the best of contemporary jazz. At the heart of the festival, a wonderful group of players will explore the late nineteenth and twentieth century duo repertoire in a wide-ranging gala, including Stephen Kovacevich in his first Kings Place appearance.
