Free Concert By World Renowned Pianist Kenneth Hamilton

An opportunity not to be missed - hear from world renowed pianist, author, lecturer and all-round virtuoso, Kenneth Hamilton.

Described by the Moscow Kommersant as “an outstanding virtuoso -one of the finest players of his generation”, and by Tom Service in The Guardian as “pianist, author, lecturer and all-round virtuoso”, Kenneth Hamilton is well-known as a recitalist and recording artist of emotional depth and striking originality.

His best-selling After the Golden Age: Romantic Pianism and Modern Performance (Oxford University Press) is one of the most internationally influential books on Classical music performance of recent decades, and has been translated into several languages. Furthermore, his recording of Preludes to Chopin has been streamed online nearly a million times, while More Preludes to Chopin was chosen as one of Spotify’s “Best Classical New Releases”.

Currently the Head of the School of Music at Cardiff University in Wales, UK, Hamilton is a keen communicator who has appeared frequently on radio and television around the world, enthusiastically promoting the understanding and appreciation of music.

Kenneth Hamilton's lunchtime concert will be held at Gallagher Academy of Performing Arts at the University of Waikato in Hamilton, starting at 1pm, Thursday 8th June.

Paid parking is available on campus at Gate 2B, Knighton Road, Hamilton.
