One of Britain’s foremost pianists, Leon McCawley has forged a highly successful career since winning first prize in the 1993 International Beethoven Piano Competition in Vienna and second prize at the Leeds International Piano Competition the same year. His concert performances and extensive discography have established him as a pianist of great integrity and variety, bringing freshness and vitality to Classical, Romantic and 20th-century repertoire.  The programme explores deeply personal works of Janáček  and Schumann as well as the poetic lyricism of Grieg and Schubert’s wistful A major Sonata.
