Kit Armstrong, piano
An extraordinary piano virtuoso, a mathematical genius, a unique composer – Kit Armstrong is in all ways one of a kind, and the intimate chamber concert with the American super-talent is going to be a spectacular encounter with a rare personality.
Kit Armstrong is 27 years old, but he has already completed an education which makes even seasoned polymaths dizzy. Already as a seven-year-old, he studied physics at California State University for the first time – while at the same time attending high school and being enrolled at the Chapman University as a student of composing. As a nine-year-old, he became a full-time student at Utah State University with courses in biology, physics, mathematics, and music. As a twelve-year-old, he moved to London to study at the Royal Academy of Music – and it goes on and on like this. Today, he has graduated summa cum laude from both the Royal Academy of Music and the Marie-Curie University in Paris.
All of this happened while Kit Armstrong most unprecedentedly also took to the world as a celebrated pianist!
The young multi-artist could just as well have filled the program with his own compositions, but he has chosen a program that brings us through the basic but major works from the times of the piano’s childhood and youth.
