The new season will celebrate the 200th anniversary of Franz Liszt’s birthday and the 50th anniversary of the death of the great English composer John Ireland.
We have international stars, piano competition winners, and brilliant young newcomers. Most of the great piano composers are represented throughout the season and there will be much excitement in the virtuoso performances.
