7.00pm St George’s Church, Deal

Freddy Kempf is one of today’s most successful pianists, performing to sell-out audiences all over the world.  Exceptionally gifted he has a unique reputation as an explosive and physical performer not afraid to take risks as well as a serious, sensitive and profoundly musical artist.  He first came to national prominence in 1992 when he won BBC Young Musician of the Year Competition. We proudly welcome back Freddy with the outstanding Wiener Kammersymphonie, who gave one of the most memorable concerts of the 2015 festival.  In this concert, created especially for this year’s celebratory Deal Festival, they perform the final two and arguably greatest piano concertos by Beethoven in intimate versions of the period for chamber ensemble.

Support from The Cavatina Trust
