Due to the remote nature of the 2021 Competition, all successful WFISC Semi-finalists will perform with their own accompanist in their country of residence. For the 2023 Competition we intend to return to the original format of successful Semi-finalists performing live with their allocated WFISC Official Pianist for all rounds of the competition in Windsor, UK.
The Official Pianists for WFISC are:
Nigel Hutchison has performed internationally as both a solo artist and chamber musician. Since his successful Wigmore Hall debut he has performed throughout Europe, the USA and the...
Simon Lane has gained recognition for his compelling and sensitive performances, and has collaborated with many of the world’s most exciting musicians including Danielle de Niese, Iestyn Davies...
The WFISC Official Pianists play a fundamental role in the success of the competition, accompanying every semi-finalist who is selected to come to Windsor, UK in all the competition rounds. We are delighted to have worked with these superb musicians through the Windsor Festival International String Competition, since 2011, and are most grateful for the support they have given over the years to all competitors in the WFISC.
