Louis Schwizgebel (piano)

Young Swiss pianist Louis Schwizgebel returns to the Clothworkers' Centenary Concert Hall in Leeds following his success at last year's Leeds International Piano Competition, to play a recital of music by Mozart, Couperin, Holliger, Liszt and Ravel.
The programme includes one of Mozart's early piano sonatas alongside one of Francois Couperin's 1717 works for harpsichord and Ravel's tribute to the great composer - "Le Tombeau de Couperin".
The second half begins with Liszt's Vallée d'Obermann from his Années de pèlerinage (Years of pilgrimage) 1st year, Switzerland, and one of Heinz Holliger's best-known piano works "Elis". The concert ends with one of the great tours-de-force of 20th century piano music - Ravel's incredible "Gaspard de la nuit".
