Lars
Vogt

Piano

Born in the German town of Düren in 1970, Lars Vogt gained international fame when he won second prize at the Leeds International Piano Competition in 1990.

The musician has given solo performances of Mozart’s piano concertos as well as Lutosławski’s dizzying piano concerto, for instance, with orchestras all over the world.

He recently performed Alban Berg’s Kammerkonzert with the Berlin Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester conducted by Vladimir Jurowski. He has also performed with the BBC Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Sakari Oramo, the Orchestre de Paris conducted by Daniel Harding and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra led by Riccardo Chailly. He has had a special connection with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra since serving as its very first pianist in residence in the 2003–4 season.

Vogt regularly performs chamber music with Christian and Tanja Tetzlaff, and has worked with Thomas Quasthoff, Ian Bostridge and others.

The pianist is also increasingly taking up the conductor’s baton. Since assuming the role of chief conductor of the Royal Northern Sinfonia in 2015, he has put the UK chamber orchestra on the international map with concerts in Europe and Asia.

Since first appearing with the RCO in 1997, Vogt has made many guest appearances with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra – most recently in 2014, when he performed Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in Amsterdam and on tour.
