As part of its CMF Presents ... series, on Thursday 2 May 2019 the City Music Foundation (CMF) is presenting the young London-based Lithuanian pianist Rokas Valuntonis in recital at London's oldest parish church, St Bartholomew the Great. Valuntonis will be performing an interestingly mixed programme starting with Tchaikovsky and ending with Liszt's Mephisto Waltz No. 1, with Chopin, Schumann, Scriabin, Scarlatti and Debussy in between.

Rokas Valuntonis studied at the Lithuanian Music and Theatre Academy and the Sibelius Academy in Finland, followed by studies with Eugen Indjic in Paris. He is currently completing an Artist Diploma at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and is a City Music Foundation Artist. He won the 2018 Campillos International Piano Competition in Spain. You can read a little more about him in the interview he did with International Piano Magazine.

Full details from the City Music Foundation website.
