Pierre-Laurent Aimard has been named the recipient of the Léonie Sonning Music Prize 2022, Denmark’s most prestigious music award. The prize will be awarded to Aimard during a concert with The Royal Danish Orchestra and conductor Sylvain Cambreling on October 7 in DR Koncerthus, as part of a larger festival featuring Aimard.

The Chairman for Léonie Sonning Music Foundation, Esben Tange, explains the reasons behind the choice: ”For the last 40 years, Pierre-Laurent Aimard has been one of the most groundbreaking and refined pianists. With his signature artistic style that encompasses sensible sound, a strong intellect, and a sparkling expressivity, he has been pushing the boundaries within the art of the piano. And with his visionary programs where composers from different eras are brought together, he has inspired the creation of new music, new interpretations of the classics and conveyed the qualities of lesser-known music.”
