The pianist will perform a solo recital at the London venue on Sunday 16 February
Pianist and Composer Nicolas Namoradze, winner of the 2018 Honens International Piano Competition, will perform a solo recital at Wigmore Hall later this month.
He will present a number of cross-temporal musical relationships, linking works by JS Bach and Scriabin with York Bowen’s monumental 12 Studies and Namoradze’s own Etudes.
He is a star on the rise after winning the Honens Competition in 2018, as well as performing at a sold-out Carnegie Hall last year and being named an "Artist to Watch" by Clemency Burton-Hill at WQXR and by Gramophone.
He has upcoming albums set to be released this year by both Hyperion and Steinway.
Nicolas studied piano with fellow pianist Emanuel Ax. Ax comments, ‘[Nicolas is] set to become one of the truly important artists of his generation.’
