• About the London Piano Festival

    The London Piano Festival was launched in 2016 by co-Artistic Directors Katya Apekisheva and Charles Owen. Originally a three-day event, the Festival now spans over 5 days in early October each year, using the world-class concert halls at Kings Place, London. Each year, Owen and Apekisheva bring together a number of star pianists to present solo recitals, jazz performances, family events and the esteemed Two-Piano Marathon. Past Festivals have included performances by Alfred Brendel, Stephen Kovacevich, Julian Joseph, Leszek Możdżer, Melvyn Tan, Nelson Goerner, Alexandra Dariescu and many more.
