Lara Melda, Piano
We are delighted to welcome the brilliant Lara Melda to Keswick. Lara is the exciting young pianist who won the BBC Young Musician 2010 competition at the age of just sixteen, performing Saint-Saëns Piano Concerto No. 2 in the final round. A superb interpreter of Chopin, Lara is a seriously formidable talent who displays a technique, range and virtuosity well beyond her years.
She studied at the Royal College of Music from where she graduated in 2016 with first-class honours.Her career blossomed in the UK and internationally including sold-out recitals at Wigmore Hall, before Covid caused a temporary halt, and her planned 2020 Keswick concert was cancelled. Now we are again looking forward to hearing her in Keswick.
