One of the leading pianists of our time whose career has been mostly in Europe, Imogen Cooper is making her much anticipated first appearance at the Festival. Born in London, Cooper studied in Paris and then under the tutelage of Alfred Brendel in Vienna, developing a style that is an intriguing mix of Paris, Vienna and her English heritage. Cooper’s program is a delightful combination of composers and musical styles.
