Welcome

The 2019 Birmingham International Piano Festival welcomes some of the world’s finest pianists and keyboard players to the city. Professor Kenneth Hamilton and Steinway's Ulrich Gerhartz lift the lid on the Henry Barber Trust funded brand new grand piano in a lecture-recital on how to select a Steinway. The festival also features a BBC Young Musician of the Year winner Freddy Kempf, a welcome return for Martin Roscoe with Peter Donohoe, Messiaen’s monumental masterpiece Visions de l’Amen, and gospel tinged and folk inspired contemporary jazz by the Sam Leak Trio.
