Born in Geneva in 1987, Swiss-Chinese pianist Louis Schwizgebel has been described as an “insightful musician” by the New York Times and “already one of the great masters of the piano” by Res Musica. At the age of seventeen he won the Geneva International Music Competition and in 2012 he won second prize at the Leeds International Piano Competition.

Schwizgebel's touch is gorgeously singing and wonderfully delicate, but can sharpen to serious bling when occasion demands — and he applies it judiciously. BBC Music Magazine
