"Lars Vogt has established himself as one of the leading musicians of his generation. Born in the German town of Düren in 1970, he first came to public attention when he won second prize at the 1990 Leeds International Piano Competition and has enjoyed a varied career for nearly twenty-five years. His versatility as an artist ranges from the core classical repertoire of Mozart, Beethoven, Schumann and Brahms to the romantics Grieg, Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov through to the dazzling Lutoslawski concerto. Lars Vogt is now increasingly working with orchestras as a conductor and in September 2015 took up his post as Music Director of Royal Northern Sinfonia at Sage, Gateshead.
During his prestigious career Lars Vogt has performed with many of the world’s great orchestras including the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Berlin Philharmonic, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Dresden Staatskapelle, Vienna Philharmonic, London Philharmonic, London Symphony Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, Boston Symphony, NHK Symphony and Orchestre de Paris. He has collaborated with some of the world’s most renowned conductors including Claudio Abbado, Daniel Harding, Mariss Jansons, Paavo Järvo, Andris Nelsons, Sir Simon Rattle and Robin Ticciati. His special relationship with the Berlin Philharmonic has continued with regular collaborations following his appointment as their first ever “pianist in Residence” in 2003/4. "
