We are delighted to welcome Lara Melda to Concerts in the West for the first time.

Lara Melda won the BBC Young Musician 2010 competition, performing Saint-Saëns Piano Concerto No 2 in the final round with Vasily Petrenko and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales in Cardiff.

Lara made her BBC Proms and Royal Albert Hall debut in 2023 as one of the soloists performing with the BBC Concert Orchestra conducted by Andrew Gourlay in an evening devoted to previous Young Musician winners. Lara made her Wigmore Hall recital debut in 2017, and followed this with three more sold out recitals.

Lara Melda performs regularly in Türkiye and made her debut at the International Music Festival in Istanbul in June 2011. Following the devastating earthquake in Türkiye and Syria, Lara has been working tirelessly on fundraising projects and events helping those affected.

In the summer of 2016 Lara graduated from the Royal College of Music with a first class honours degree.

Most recently she curated a critically acclaimed multi sensory Van Gogh immersive concert experience in collaboration with Exhibition Hub, where the audience and Lara’s playing become intertwined in a journey through Van Gogh’s life – the music and art together evoking different emotions, feelings and memories for each person.
