Recitalist, soloist, chamber musician and conductor, Aldeburgh Festival Artistic Director designate Pierre-Laurent Aimard combines technical mastery with an ability to paint the full spectrum of colour and identify with the spirit of each work. Typically, this programme spans the centuries, an intriguing mix of classical style with the distilled, sensuous expressionism of Schoenberg, Webern and Aldeburgh Festival's featured composer György Kurtág.

‘...his playing is big-boned, strongly profiled and richly textured. There is nothing ordinary about Aimard. His musicianship is in a class of its own.'
