Welcome to the 2024 London Piano Festival at Kings Place!

This October we will be celebrating the spirit of musical collaboration, a thread which has run through all our festivals since 2016.

We are delighted to welcome exceptional pianists including Lara Melda, one of the most insightful players of the younger generation, together with Reinis Zairins acclaimed for his distinctive, gripping style. For jazz fans there will be a thrilling opportunity to experience Kit Armstrong & Michael Wollny on two pianos.

Historic women composers will receive a particular focus from Susan Tomes whilst Rose McLachlan brings us Twenty Two brand new pieces all written by female composers in homage to Chopin.

For the first time we will include non-pianists in our lineup when the superb Carducci String Quartet join the music making for a special opening night Mozart Gala; an exciting, much anticipated new strand to the LPF journey!
