Young Virtuosi serie 2024 – Nikola Meeuwsen

On Sunday 6 October Nikola Meeuwsen plays at the Duif in Amsterdam. He will take a seat behind Youri Egorov’s grand piano at 15:00. The fourth edition of the Young Virtuosi series is organised by the YPF to give talented young pianists a stage, a chance to develop and gain experience.

Programme follows

Nikola Meeuwsen (2002) has already had a remarkably mature career. He made his full-length solo debut at the Concertgebouw on 19 January 2024, performing works by Schubert, Beethoven, Brahms, and Schumann. In 2025, he will perform as a soloist with the Residentie Orkest for the third time.

At 20, Nikola became the youngest musician ever to win the Grachtenfestival Prize and was the artist in residence of this Amsterdam festival in 2023.

Nikola Meeuwsen is expanding his horizons by performing internationally. For example, in October 2023, he played Grieg’s Piano Concerto at the renowned Dvořák Hall of the Rudolfinum in Prague, as part of the Young Prague international festival for young talent.

Nikola has performed with many leading young talents such as Noa Wildschut, Benjamin Kruithof, SongHa Choi and Alexander Warenberg. He has also performed with his teacher and inspiration, Enrico Pace.

Since 2010 Nikola has been studying with Marlies van Gent and since 2014 with Enrico Pace at the Accademia Pianistica in Imola. Currently Nikola is also a student at the Queen Elisabeth Chapel in Brussels with Frank Braley and Avedis Kouyoumdjian.

YPF Young Virtuosi Series
In 2021, the YPF launched the Young Virtuosi series for YPF laureates and top young pianists, the ‘Young Virtuosi’, in which they are given the promised opportunity through concerts and master classes to further develop their craftsmanship and bring out the best in themselves. A great success. The concerts of the Young Virtuosi series 2023 (and before) can be viewed via this link.

The concerts will take place in De Duif at Prinsengracht 756 in Amsterdam. During the six concerts, YPF laureates and top young pianists will play on the grand piano of legendary pianist Youri Egorov, who died in Amsterdam at the age of 33.

Master classes
Master classes will also be organized again in 2024. These special ‘classes’ will take place in ‘MuziekHaven’ in Zaandam. Programming and further information about the master classes will follow shortly.
