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 on 21 May last year. This year's competition took place on Sunday 29 April 2018 at Clarendon Muse in Watford. For a full report see the Competition website and its Facebook page:

The next competition will be held on Sunday 7 April 2019 at 3 pm, again at Clarendon Muse in Watford.
