Born in Leeds in 1993, Niklas Oldemeier has in recent years been attracting increasing attention from the press and public as an emerging young talent.

Niklas started to play the piano at the age of 5, and at 11 was accepted to study at Chetham’s School of Music in Manchester. On graduating in 2011, he enrolled at the Royal Academy of Music and completed the BMus and MA programmes under the tutelage of Sulamita Aronovsky.

An active performer in diverse capacities, Niklas has been awarded the Worshipful Company of Musicians Bach Prize; he also won a place on the Emerging Artists Programme at the London Sinfonietta Academy, which offered him the opportunity to train with the world’s leading contemporary music ensemble.

Niklas’s performing activities have taken him to several countries throughout Europe. Winner of the Deena Shypitka Music Award, he also regularly appears with orchestra and in recitals throughout the UK. Notable highlights have included solo recitals at St James’s Piccadilly and Regent Hall in London, as well as Mozart and Beethoven concertos in Wakefield and Chester, earning high critical praise from BBC Radio 3’s Rob Cowan. He also received high acclaim for his performance at the Royal Hall in Harrogate. Niklas was also a featured Young Artist at the Stoller Hall in Manchester for Manchester’s International Piano Festival.

Niklas Oldemeier represents the highest echelon of young British pianists, and his performances inspire an enthusiastic response.

“In his confident hands Beethoven’s op. 101 was spacious and persuasive, with great delicacy in the shading and phrasing. To Liszt’s Sonetto 104 he brought flawless virtuosity… his future looks bright.” International Piano Magazine
