Events Description

Presented by The Leeds International Piano Competition, the inaugural Leeds Piano Festival will take place across eight days in May 2018 in Leeds and London.

It features distinguished past winners and alumni of the competition Lars Vogt, Alessio Bax and Sunwook Kim, who will give recitals in both cities, as well as the brilliant Young Scholars of the Lang Lang International Music Foundation, who will not only give a recital, but inspire other young people through an extensive programme of outreach work in Leeds and London, the latter in collaboration with Wigmore Hall’s Learning programme.
