SCHUBERT ON SUNDAY SERIES
BÉLA HARTMANN – Piano
SUNDAY 8th JUNE 2011

In 2000, he was a semi-finalist at the Leeds International Piano Competition.
In 2005 he played the complete Schubert sonatas and dances in a series of 8 recitals at the Steinway Hall in London. He played for us at the Gateway last December and again in March to great acclaim.
Also in June he has been invited to compete in the prestigious International Richter Competition in Moscow, held in memory of the great pianist Sviatoslav Richter.
A prize-winner of both national and international competitions, the Czech-German pianist Béla Hartmann has established a reputation for lively and individual interpretations of a wide repertoire, ranging from Giles Farnaby and Rameau to Luciano Berio.
Schubert and Beethoven form the core of this extensive range, and he was both prize-winner in the International Schubert Competition, Dortmund, and winner of the Beethoven Medal of the Beethoven Piano Society of Europe.
