MUSSORGSKY Pictures at an Exhibition
Born in Geneva in 1987, Swiss-Chinese pianist Louis Schwizgebel has been described as an “insightful musician” by the New York Times and “already one of the great masters of the piano” by Res Musica. At the age of 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 in 2013 he was invited to become a BBC New Generation Artist.
This is Louis’ second appearance at the Festival. We are thrilled that he has included Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, the first time at NNMF.
