One of NNMF’s favourite pianists, Louis Schwizgebel, returns for a long-awaited third visit. Born in 1987 into a family of artists from Switzerland and China, Louis Schwizgebel has been praised repeatedly for the clarity of his playing and his exceptional finger work. At the age of only seventeen, he won the Geneva International Music Competition and, two years later, the Young Concert Artists International Auditions in New York. In 2012 he won second prize at the Leeds International Piano Competition and between 2013-2015 he was a BBC New Generation Artist. This 2019/20 season included debuts with the Bavarian Radio Symphony, Frankfurt Radio Symphony and Bern Symphony orchestras in Europe, with Cincinnati Symphony, Omaha Symphony and Louisiana Philharmonic orchestras in the US and further afield with the Tasmanian Symphony and Auckland Philharmonia Orchestras.
This concert is generously supported by Richard and Briony Linsell.
