Kala Academy presents a piano recital by Prof. Karl Lutchmayer, on 9 December 7.15 pm, at Dinanath Mangueshkar Indoor Auditorium, Panjim. Entry is free.

Karl Lutchmayer enjoys an international career as both a pianist and lecturer. He studied at the Royal College of Music where he won numerous prizes and scholarships, and later held the prestigious Constant and Kit Lambert Fellowship awarded by the Worshipful Company of Musicians – the first time in its history that it was awarded to an instrumentalist.

Lutchmayer has given recitals and concerts throughout the world, working with conductors including Lorin Maazel and Sir Andrew Davis, and performed at all the major London concert halls. He has broadcast on BBC Radio3 and Classic FM, and his regular recital series at The Warehouse has been received with critical acclaim. A regular chamber performer, particularly with his own ensemble, Dialogos, he is also a passionate advocate of contemporary music and has given numerous premieres and had many works written for him.

His research interests include the piano music and pianism of Busoni, The Creative Transcription Network, and the history of piano recital programming. He has recently returned from a guest professorship in Ithaca, New York, and is currently professor of performing practice at Trinity College of Music. He is also a regular guest lecturer at the Manhattan and Juilliard Schools in New York, and at the Wigmore Hall, London, and writes a weekly column for Time Out magazine.
