  • Kit Armstrong piano

A former child prodigy, the American pianist and composer studied at the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia and then at London’s Royal Academy of Music, all the while continuing parallel studies in mathematics; he has continued to work with Alfred Brendel. A noted performer of Liszt, he is equally interested in the keyboard music of English virginalists such as John Bull, and in this intriguing programme combines these two enthusiasms.
