The Keyboard Trust, a charity that supports young international pianists aged 18-30, will be presenting its annual Prizewinner’s Concert at Wigmore Hall on Tuesday, 24th January 2017 (7.30pm) featuring the remarkable young Romanian-Italian pianist EMANUEL RIMOLDI performing a popular programme:

SCHUMANN – Humoreske Op.20
VERDI /LISZT – Danza sacra e duetto finale’ from Aida
RACHMANINOV – 10 Preludes Op.23
One of the best pianists I have heard in years. He combines in his playing youthful freshness and vitality with a maturity well beyond his age. Thus he is predestined for an international career – Paul Badura-Skoda
