The term genius is bandied about so often that people now hesitate to use it. However, no one exemplifies it better than Kit Armstrong, an extraordinarily gifted pianist with a staggeringly natural approach, who is also a composer, music publisher, early music expert, mathematician and conductor. He is the heir to Alfred Brendel, who was astonished by his talents and took him on as his special pupil. A cosmopolitan figure with an encyclopaedic cultural knowledge and the darling of conductors and international orchestras alike, he is making his debut at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées with an extremely bold and inventive programme which very few performers could tackle.
