Her passion transcends the limits of the piano keyboard…
Lara Melda, recognized as a prodigy at an early age, is exceeding all expectations, and has taken the international classical world by storm.
The daughter of a Turkish family now living in London, Lara took first prize in the 2010 BBC Young Musicians competition with her Saint-Saëns Piano Concerto No.2 when she was only sixteen. In 2012 she received the "Promising Young Artist" award from Kadir Has University.
Lara Melda has gained international fame through concert performances with England's major orchestras including Royal Northern Sinfonia, Leeds Symphony, Watford Philharmony, Maidstone, Aylesbury, Royal Tunbridge Wells and Worthing Symphony Orchestra.
Lara Melda performs regularly in Turkey and made her debut at the International Music Festival in Istanbul in June 2011, playing the Grieg Concerto with the Borusan Philharmonic, and is looking forward to meeting the music lovers in Istanbul once again.
Join us at PSM for this performance…
