SJE Arts 6th International Piano Series
Winner of the prestigious 2017 International Ernest von Siemens Music Prize in recognition of a life devoted to the service of music, Pierre-Laurent Aimard performs each season with the world’s most significant orchestras and conductors.
He has been involved in ground-breaking residencies in New York, Vienna and Paris, served for 7 years as Artistic Director of the Aldeburgh Festival and is currently Artist-in-Residence at London’s Southbank Centre. We are delighted to have him open our 2018-2019 Piano Series.
Pierre-Laurent Aimard will perform the Goldberg Variations, Bach’s keyboard masterpiece of thirty variations on a main theme, exploring a variety of forms and moving towards a final, joyous quodlibet. The composer’s own epithet ‘For Music Lovers, to Refresh their Spirits’ seems entirely appropriate.
