The Rhinegold Live concert season kicks off at Conway Hall on Tuesday 29 September 2015 with a recital from Portuguese pianist Artur Pizarro. Entitled Songs my mother taught me the programme (the exact playlist is being kept under wraps) is based on music concert pianist grandmother introduced him to from the age of four. Artur was introduced to the piano by his grandmother, the pianist Berta da Nóbrega, and her piano-duo partner, Campos Coelho who was a student of Vianna da Motta, Ricardo Viñes and Isidor Philipp. From 1974 to 1990 Artur studied with Sequeira Costa who had also been a student of Vianna da Motta and of Mark Hamburg, Edwin Fischer, Marguerite Long and Jacques Février. This has given Artur a remarkably legacy of teaching of the Golden Age of pianism.

Rhinegold Live concerts are free and start at 7pm, preceded by a free drink; tickets are available from the Rhinegold Live website. The concert on 29 September will be followed by a Q&A between Artur Pizzaro and Owen Mortimer, editor of International Piano magazine.

The Rhinegold Live season continues at Conway Hall with Trio Elegiaco (Monday 7 December), Jonathan Plowright (Thursday 4 February 2016), National Opera Studio (Thursday 17 March 2016), Katya Apekisheva & Charles Owen (Tuesday 26 April). Further information from the Rhinegold Live website.
