Alim Beisenbayev – Saturday 16th July 2022, 7.30pm

24-year-old Alim Beisembayev astounded the world last year with his performances at the Leeds International Piano Competition, taking home not only the First Prize but also the Audience Prize and the Royal Philharmonic Society Prize for contemporary performance. 

Alim will close this year’s RVIPW with a highly virtuosic and poetic programme which begins with Haydn’s lyrical ‘Variations in F minor’. This will be followed by Chopin’s “Piano Sonata No.2”, perhaps one of the composer’s most dramatic and passionate works, closing with 7 of Liszt’s visionary “12 Études d’Exécution Transcendante”.


HAYDN Variations in F minor, Hob. XVII/6

CHOPIN Sonata No. 2 in B flat minor, Op. 35

LISZT Seven pieces from “12 Études d’Exécution Transcendante”, S. 139
