The pianist Paul Lewis has resigned as co-Artistic Director of the Leeds International Piano Competition.
That leaves Adam Gatehouse in sole charge.
Paul’s decision follows shortly on the arrival of a new chief executive, Fiona Sinclair, though the events may be unconnected.
Paul says: ‘The journey at LIPC over the last three years has been an endlessly fascinating one, full of discoveries, challenges, and surprises along the way. It has been a huge thrill and a privilege to have played a part in the process of renewing the competition, and I have no doubt that The Leeds will continue to evolve and develop in exciting ways over the coming years.’
