Leon McCawley, one of Britain’s foremost pianists, has forged a highly successful career since winning 1st Prize in the 1993 International Beethoven Piano Competition in Vienna and 2nd Prize at the Leeds International Piano Competition, building on his earlier success as Winner of the Piano Section of BBC Young Musician of the Year in 1990. He first appeared at Malvern Concert Club in 1995.

Since then, Leon McCawley’s impressive discography has established him as a pianist of great integrity and variety, bringing freshness and vitality to classical, romantic and 20th century repertoire. He has been praised for the purity of his lyrical and heartfelt playing. In April 2011 he performed the complete Mozart Piano Sonatas over one weekend at King’s Place, London in winning performances: ’There’s absolutely no vanity in his playing, which is bright, clean and unfailingly communicative. In his hands the Mozartian oeuvre emerged with striking vividness’ [International Piano]. Other notable recitals in past seasons include London’s Wigmore Hall and Southbank Centre, Berlin, New York, Hong Kong, Prague and Washington DC. He can be frequently heard on BBC Radio 3 both in performance and interview with most recent broadcasts including In Tune, Wigmore Hall Lunchtime Series and Performance on 3.

We are pleased to welcome Leon McCawley back to Malvern with a captivating programme celebrating largely Viennese works by Mozart, Schubert and Brahms, rounded off with Chopin’s triumphant Polonaise in A flat.
