London Piano Pageant – two piano marathon at Kings Place

Katya Apekisheva and Charles Owen’s London Piano Pageant returns to Kings Place from 5 to eight October 2023 for the competition’s eighth iteration. This yr’s competition options performances from the co-artistic administrators, Katya Apekisheva and Charles Owen, plus Clare Hammond, Vadym Kholodenko, Danny Driver, Lucy Parham and Leszek Możdżer.

Katya Apekisheva and Charles Owen open the competition with a celebration of Rachmaninoff together with his two suites, Fantaisie Tableaux and Symphonic Dances alongside Eleanor Alberga’s Two-Piano Suite. The Rachmaninoff theme continues because the competition closes with Lucy Parham and actor Tim McInnerny in Parham’s Elégie – Rachmaninov: A Coronary heart in Exile.

Ukrainian grasp pianist and 2013 Van Cliburn winner Vadym Kholodenko makes his competition (and Kings Place) debut with a solo recital together with music by Handel, Haydn, Beethoven, Liszt, Silvestrov and Ades, and there’s a celebration of Ligeti with Katya Apekisheva, Danny Driver, Clare Hammond and Charles Owen. Danny Driver will even be giving a masterclass on Ligeti’s Études. And there may be jazz too with an improvised set from Leszek Możdżer.
