Before winning the Vendôme Prize at the 2019 Verbier Festival, pianist Daumants Liepiņš had already been named Young Artist of the Year in the Latvian National Grand Music Awards and distinguished himself as a laureate in several major international competitions. This recital, his first at the Festival, is part of the Vendôme Prize, as is a recording on the Steinway label. His elegantly conceived programme of two sonatas and a sonatina presents a chronological sequence of composers: Schumann, Ravel and Barber.
