St Petersburg Symphony Orchestra tour dates
Freddy Kempf came to national prominence in 1992 when he won the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition following a memorable performance of Rachmaninov's Paganini Variations. Today he is one of the most important young classical artists on the world stage. He has since performed at the very highest level, including most recently with the Philadelphia Orchestra, St Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, CBSO, San Francisco Symphony, and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
'Kempf shaped lines with delicacy and insight, yet it was the balance with an impetuous Beethovian fire that lifted the performance of the third concerto on to a higher level' (The Guardian)
'The delicacy of his touch was almost excruciating... His right-hand twinkled like a music box... The subtle, refined tenderness of Kempf’s musicianship keeps you leaning in... Kempf has the ability to turn his hand to every mood and style
necessary' (Time Out).
