The Artist

Spanish pianist Guillem León has recently been praised by La Vanguardia for his “remarkable musical intelligence and intuition”. He has started a multinational career, performing in venues across Spain and in Portugal, Italy, Poland, England and the United States. Within his birth city of Barcelona, he has performed in the Palau de la Música Catalana (Sala de Concerts and Petit Palau), the Gran Teatre del Liceu, and the Casa Elizalde among others. He has also given performances in Teatros del Canal in Madrid, Musical Arts Center and Auer Hall at Indiana University Bloomington and, most recently, St James’s Piccadilly in London.

Apart from his solo work, he has also had extensive experience in collaborative music, the latest being his performance with mezzo-soprano Cristina Tena in the Música Z concert cycle in Barcelona.

Guillem has recently been awarded first prizes at the BMF International Competition in New York and the Tiziano Rossetti International Competition in Switzerland. In 2021 he received a VSA International Young Soloist award from the John F Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, as well as a full scholarship to attend the Semana Internacional de Piano de Obidos in Portugal.

After finishing his Bachelor’s in Conservatori del Liceu with José Enrique Bagaría under a full scholarship from Fundació Ferrer-Salat, Guillem now studies with Tatiana Sarkissova at the Royal Academy of Music in London as a Nina Finburg Scholar of the Snowdon Trust. He has recently worked with and received guidance from pianists such as Boris Berman, Yevgeni Sudbin and Eugen Indjic.
