SJE Arts International Piano Series

SJE Arts International Piano Series brings interesting pianists from around the world to our Oxford audience. The idea developed when a generous grant from the Wolfson Foundation helped us to purchase a fine Steinway concert grand piano.

SJE Arts International Piano Series 2023

The Series 10th birthday! A wonderful mix of performers and programmes running from February through June. Mariam Batsashvili and Tamara Stefanovich visit for the first time, Leeds International Piano Competition winner Eric Lu makes his second appearance, there’s a cello piano duo, and we welcome the return of old friends of the Series, Angela Hewitt, Sir Stephen Hough, Steven Osborne and Maki Sekiya.

Tickets: £17-£40
