Valentin Schiedermair has performed around the world since his first radio recording at the age of 16. A Valentin Schiedermair performance is more than just a concert….it is a musical event. This London-based German pianist engages with his audience and draws on all his exceptional background and experience to take them on a musical journey. His objective is simple - to share the joy and excitement of music with his audience.  

His solo tours of China, Taiwan and Singapore drew enthusiastic audiences in fifteen major cities. He gave the opening concert of the Beethoven Piano Festival in Beethoven’s birthplace in Bonn, Germany and played for German National Day at the Parliament. His large repertoire includes the complete piano sonatas of Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert.


Valentin Schiedermair helped to relaunch the Watford International Piano Competition in memory of Christopher Duke in 2017. Unfortunately this year's competition has had to be cancelled and the next competition will be on 18 April 2021 at Clarendon Muse in Watford.

Valentin Schiedermair has reached the end of his cycle of all Schubert Piano Sonatas. He also completed performing both books of Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier on 12 November last year. This season sees him giving concerts in the UK, Ireland and Germany. A highlight of last year was another sold-out and very successful recital for the London Chopin Society. He also performed ‘Einstein’s Music’ very successfully in Edinburgh and for the Balliol College Musical Society in Oxford. It draws on Einstein’s love of classical music and the parallels with his scientific work. Another themed programme ‘Mary Stuart – A legacy of strong women’ he performed in Fotheringhay, where Mary Stuart was executed and at the Cambridge Female Composers’ Festival.
