2019 GUIDE TO FESTIVALS

Oxford Piano Festival
Oxford Piano Festival
WHAT DISTINGUISHES THIS FESTIVAL
Set in an historic city, and prestigious seat of learning, the Oxford Piano Festival combines a world-class concert series with acclaimed pianists and a program of master classes for a dozen talented young participants drawn from across the globe, observed by a large contingent of piano enthusiasts.
FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHTS
As usual, we traverse various schools of pianism, beginning with one of the most longstanding and thrilling: the Russian school. Boris Berezovsky, laureate of the Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, opens our recital series with a program bookended by Rachmaninov. From Argentina, we welcome Ingrid Fliter, a pianist whose revelatory work on the central European repertoire has been of vital importance. Also making her debut is Beatrice Rana, an emerging pianist of extraordinary intelligence and musicianship still in her mid-twenties. Old friends join us, too: from America, Sergei Babayan returns for an evening dedicated to the music of the piano's greatest prophet, Frédéric Chopin, while our close associate Menahem Pressler gives a recital that will be full of the atmosphere only he can generate. Steven Osborne's acute affinity with Olivier Messiaen's piano works (and one in particular) brings our recital series to a close with another debut appearance.
