17 February @ Government House Ballroom ·
Presented by Freddy Kempf ·

An audience with pianist Freddy Kempf is an exhilarating experience – whether his fingers are glittering at breakneck speed across the keys or he’s exquisitely serenading you with a deft emotional touch. Kempf is one of today’s most successful pianists performing to sell-out audiences all over the world. Exceptionally gifted with an unusually road repertoire, he has built a unique reputation as both an explosive and physical performer who is not afraid to take risks, as well as a serious, sensitive and profoundly musical artist.

Kempf’s strong rapport with Russia and its music, developed over years of frequent concert engagements and a language fluency to rival the locals,began in 1998 as he won the hearts of Moscow audiences in the TchaikovskyPiano Competition. Few contemporary pianists have the measure of these iconic monuments of 19th century pianism quite like he does. His often-called meteoric rise to the stage has now stood the test of time, and while the music he champions seems to always require nerves of steel and highly impressive dexterity, his experience and deep understanding of the repertoire will blow you away.

Freddy Kempf is certainly no stranger to piano enthusiasts, but this opportunity to hear him perform in the beautiful surrounds of the Government House Ballroom will be a truly special experience.
