Florian Mitrea returns to Saint Anne’s, Kew, to present a concert which celebrates the centenary of the première performance of Prokofiev’s Sonata no. 3.
Described by Martha Argerich as ‘an outstanding young pianist’, British-Romanian pianist Florian Mitrea was a double-laureate at the 2017 Scottish, 2017 Saint Priest, 2015 Hamamatsu and 2014 ARD Munich International Piano Competitions. He has performed at King’s Place, St Martin in the Fields and St John Smith Square, and abroad in Germany (Bavarian Radio Studios), Poland (Chopin Academy), Romania (Romanian Athenaeum), Japan (Bunka Kaikan Hall Tokyo) and South Korea (Seoul Arts Centre). Reviewers have described Florian’s playing as having ‘stupendous virtuosity’ (Süddeutsche Zeitung, 2017), ‘phenomenal precision throughout’ (The Herald, 2017), and presenting ‘a mixture of phenomenal technique and ravishing musical intelligence’ (The Cambridge Independent, 2018).
