Leeds International Piano Competition

The festival celebrates the third year of its relationship with the competition that has produced multiple prize winners who have gone on to make major international careers. In addition to his success in Leeds, Ariel was honoured in 2023 to receive the Prix Serdang, a prize awarded by the distinguished Austrian pianist Rudolf Buchbinder.  Not a competition, this is an unsolicited recognition of a young pianist’s achievements and an investment in their future. 

We welcome him in a programme that includes Schubert’s so-called Fantasie sonata and Bartok’s group of folk song settings composed in his recognisably energetic and characterful style.   

Schubert Sonata in G major, D.894
Bartók 15 Hungarian Peasant Songs, Sz.71
Chopin Sonata No 3 in B minor, Op.58
