Regarded as one of the finest interpreters of Classical and Romantic repertoire, Imogen Cooper is internationally renowned for her virtuosity and lyricism. She has a widespread international career, appearing with all the world’s major orchestras, and is also a committed chamber musician and Lieder recitalist.
Imogen received a CBE in the Queen’s New Year Honours in 2007, the 2019 Queen’s Medal for Music in 2019 and a DBE in this year’s Queen’s Birthday Honours. She founded the Imogen Cooper Music Trust in 2015, to support young pianists at the cusp of their careers and give them time in an environment of peace and beauty. This year she will chair the jury at the Leeds International Piano Competition.
“Imogen is one of the greatest musicians England has produced. She’s utterly without show. Mozart, Schumann and Schubert could have been written for her. There’s a poetic, reflective side to her which is always there in her playing.” Sir Simon Rattle
The concert is expected to last approximately 60 min.
