Monday to Friday and one hour before each concert
Over nineteen years, Chetham’s International Summer School and Festival for Pianists has grown into one of the largest and best loved summer schools in the world, attracting over 500 pianists of all ages and abilities over two weeks each August to make music and learn from a superb faculty of players. Since its move into The Stoller Hall in 2017, the International Piano Series has built a growing public audience, enjoying a fortnight of music by professional and emerging artists alongside the Summer School’s participants.
The International Piano Series concludes with a competition for outstanding young musicians from across the world. With a final extended over two nights, young soloists will perform alongside Manchester Camerata for a jury made up of experienced concert pianists. Join them to hear masterpieces of piano repertoire, performed by the next generation of players, and see if you can pick out the overall winner.
As the jury deliberate on Monday evening, we welcome Eric Lu to perform Mozart Piano Concerto No. 23 in A major, K488. Eric Lu won First Prize at The Leeds International Piano Competition in September 2018.
“Lu seems already to possess something of the magic tough of early Leeds laureates Murray Perahia and Radu Lupu, and is surely one of the most exciting prospects in a long time. A veritable poet of the keyboard.” The Guardian
