Wednesday 28 June 2017

Former St Edmund’s pupil and world-renowned concert pianist Freddy Kempf returns to present a stunning programme to launch our Festival in style.

Freddy Kempf is one of today’s most successful pianists, performing to sell-out audiences all over the world. Exceptionally gifted with an unusually broad repertoire, Freddy has built a unique reputation as an explosive and physical performer not afraid to take risks as well as a serious, sensitive and profoundly musical artist.

Freddy performs around the globe with many of the world’s leading orchestras including the St Petersburg Symphony, Prague Symphony, the New Zealand Symphony and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

“Kempf shaped lines with delicacy and insight, yet it was the balance with an impetuous Beethovenian fire that lifted the performance of the third concerto on to a higher level” The Guardian
