BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists

Michael Pandya & Keval Shah

This is a past event which has now ended.

Keval Shah

Keval Shah has quickly established himself at the forefront of a new generation of collaborative pianists. Since 2020, he has been Lecturer of Lied at the Sibelius Academy, Helsinki, an appointment which made him the institution’s youngest professor, and he now divides his time between running the Academy’s Lied programme and appearing in recital at venues and festivals across Europe, as well as maintaining an increasingly busy schedule as a guest teacher, artistic curator and broadcaster. 

Engagements in the 2023/2024 season include recitals at Wigmore Hall, the Hugo Wolf Akademie, Stuttgart, Oxford International Song Festival, Leicester International Music Festival and Oulu Music Festival, collaborating with artists including Louise Alder, Iryna Kyshliaruk, Theodore Platt and Tomi Punkeri. Recent highlights include a recital at Wigmore Hall with Karita Mattila, performances of Winterreise with Roderick Williams, and Saariaho songs with Anu Komsi, in the presence of the composer, as well as a residency with Dame Imogen Cooper and Henk Neven as a scholarship holder of the Imogen Cooper Music Trust. 


Michael Pandya

Michael Pandya is a British pianist and conductor, increasingly sought-after as a performer and vocal coach in the UK and Europe. He is a BBC New Generation Artist 2023-25.

A former young artist at the Bayerische Staatsoper, he has appeared on the performance stage alongside many high-calibre established and emerging musicians including Bryn Terfel, Nadine Sierra, Graham Johnson, Željko Lučić, Jonathan Lemalu, Robin Tritschler, Michael Nagy, Ema Nikolovska, Freddie de Tommaso, Harriet Burns, William Thomas, Andrew Hamilton and Leo Popplewell.

As a song pianist, Michael has been awarded several prestigious prizes including the Pianist Prize at the Wigmore Hall International Song Competition, at the Gerald Moore Award, at the Kathleen Ferrier Awards, and at the Maureen Lehane Vocal Awards.

Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May Festival and our year-round arts education work, focusing on children and young people, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk and the region.

This year we begin an exciting new initiative, Festival Connect & Create that will bring creative opportunities to those schools and communities with least provision. Creativity transforms people’s lives. It builds cohesive communities, develops vital skills and supports health and wellbeing. We want more people to have access to creative opportunities.

Please consider donating to support and develop this work. With your help we can increase access to the life changing power of the arts.
