Riyad studied and made his debut in Aleppo, and came to the UK as a prodigy to take part in international competitions. There is such a wealth of competitive pianistic talent in Syria and the Lebanon, and we are particularly happy to welcome Riyad as a representative of the amazing talent that will survive any amount of political turmoil.

The Chopin and Liszt pieces will display Riyad’s technique and musical sensitivity to the utmost.
