Award-winning pianist Amit Yahav is much in demand as a recitalist, chamber musician and concerto soloist, having earned his reputation for interpretations that grip and move audiences with passion and intellectual insight. His interpretations of the music of Chopin and Schumann in particular have received high praise. Alongside his performing career, Amit also conducted research into Chopin with the generous support of the Royal College of Music’s Polonsky Award. In 2018, he earned a Doctor of Music degree for his thesis investigating interpretation in the music of Chopin.
The proceeds of this concert, presented by Conway Hall in partnership with Safe Passage UK will go to Safe Passage UK, a charity that aims the help refugee children find legal routes into the UK. This cause is particularly close to Amit’s heart, as his own late grandfather was one of the refugee children rescued during World War II by Sir Nicholas Winton.
