Pierre-Laurent Aimard
  • Edinburgh International Festival

Quite simply one of the worlds greatest pianists, Pierre-Laurent Aimard has been a favourite at the International Festival for many years. With his remarkable power and clarity, he brings compelling insights to works from the earliest keyboard music to some of todays most complex piano creations.

At the start of the 20th century Arnold Schoenberg and his circle of students and colleagues in Vienna looked to redefine music entirely " not only how it was constructed, but also what it could mean. The result is some of the most intense and intimate music ever written, but also some of the most influential.

Aimard performs a collection of pieces from Schoenberg and other composers who followed his ideas, from the intense micro-dramas of Schoenbergs Six Little Piano Pieces, Op 19, to the immense cumulative power of his Piano Pieces, Op 33a and Op 33b.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.
