Heralded as ‘a gigantic talent’ and her multi-faceted playing described as ‘dazzling’, pianist Valentina Lisitsa pushes traditional boundaries to reach out to audiences around the globe. Now the most sought-after classical musician on the web performs at the Royal Albert Hall on Tuesday 19 June 2012 for a special one-off piano recital.

A champion in the use of new media, with more than 30 million YouTube channel views and more than 42,000 subscribers to her YouTube channel, Valentina Lisitsa is one of the most popular contemporary classical musicians in the world and has changed perceptions on how classical music can be viewed and performed. Last summer, thousands of music fans worldwide witnessed the live broadcast of her practice sessions as she learnt and prepared almost 4 hours of new music in daily 14-hour sessions, allowing Valentina to show a different aspect of her artistic persona. With almost 2 million hits for just one of her videos, she is the most popular pianist on YouTube.

Having performed around the world including debuts with the Chicago Symphony, Seattle Symphony, WDR Cologne, Seoul Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony and the Pittsburgh Symphony, she has bedazzled audiences with her vast repertoire ranging from Bach and Mozart to Shostakovich and Bernstein. She admits to having a special affinity for the music of Rachmaninoff and Beethoven and continues to add to her vast repertoire each season. Her orchestral repertoire alone includes more than forty concerti. She has also recorded 3 independently released DVDs, including her best-selling set of Chopin’s 24 Etudes, which long held the coveted No.1 spot on the Amazon music video list.
This special concert is presented by the Royal Albert Hall and IMG Artists as part of the Hall’s growing commitment to promote more events itself and provide new and diverse visitor experiences for as wide a range of music lovers as possible. Jasper Hope, Chief Operating Officer at the Hall, said “We are delighted to welcome Valentina Lisitsa to the Hall for her debut performance at the venue. Her presentation of classical music in a modern context and huge online popularity is nothing short of phenomenal and this concert on the world’s most famous stage will no doubt add to her ever growing fan base”

Royal Albert Hall
The Royal Albert Hall is the world’s most famous stage. Its breathtaking auditorium hosts over 370 shows a year by the world’s greatest artists. The magical atmosphere combined with inspired artists creates legendary events.

Opened in 1871 as part of Prince Albert’s vision for a centre for the Arts and Sciences, and a registered charity operating without public funding, it remains true to his founding ambitions within a modern context. Extending the brand with over 120 events outside the auditorium, the Hall has broadened its appeal to younger, diverse audiences whilst still engaging its existing customers.
In 2009, the Hall renovated the Elgar Room as a state-of-the-art performance space and restaurant which now hosts performances of classical music, jazz and world music, comedy, dance and hush, a series of gigs for just signed bands throughout the year. It also works extensively with schools and young people through its Learning and Participation programme, reaching over 30,000 participants each year.
