To open our 2014-2015 season, Chamber Music in Little Venice are delighted to present the pianist Reinis Zarins – one of the most distinguished pianists to have emerged from Latvia in recent times.

Reinis Zarins’ playing has been described as “electrifying”, with “unerring judgment” (International Piano Magazine), while boasting “magnificent tone” (Diena) and “thrilling clarity” (Boulezian).

As an international artist, Reinis performs on both sides of the Atlantic, and recently also in South Africa. Exhilarated audiences have heard him as a recitalist, chamber musician and soloist with orchestras in the Baltic States, the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Germany, Finland, Russia, and United States, in such venues as Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall and Steinway Hall in New York, London’s Wigmore and Steinway halls, St. Petersburg’s Glazunov Hall, and Tchaikovsky hall in Moscow.
Reinis has won top prizes in eleven international competitions, including first prizes in B.Smetana International Competition (Czech Republic), Jaques Samuel Piano Competition (UK), and “Brother and Sister” piano-duo competition in St.Petersburg, (Russia).

In Latvia, Reinis regularly performs as a soloist with the leading orchestras, and as a recitalist and chamber musician. His performances are broadcast live on national radio and TV, and in both 2011 and 2012 they received Best-of-the-Year award given by the classical music radio. Reinis is a two times winner of the supreme Latvian state award in music – the Great Music Award.
Reinis has recorded two critically-acclaimed albums with Champs Hill Records: Circus & Magic, and a recital of works by the eminent Latvian classicist Jāzeps Vītols. Reinis’ debut recital in Wigmore hall has also been released featuring Beethoven’s “Hammerklavier” sonata and works by Schubert.
