London-based Georgian pianist Luka Okros will add another major performance venue to his musical appearances later this month when the artist holds a solo concert at London's Southbank Centre.

Promoted as the UK’s largest arts venue and one of the capital city's "leading cultural complexes", the centre's Purcell Hall will host Okros in his renditions of works by Frédéric Chopin and Franz Liszt for classical music enthusiasts.

Throughout 95 minutes of the show the Georgian-born artist will play all four of Chopin’s Ballades before using his talent for interpreting the "intensely dramatic" Sonata in B minor by Liszt, a preview for the concert said.

At the age of 27, Okros has established himself as one of the most promising pianists of his generation.

He has already won eight first prizes in top international piano competitions and performed in some of the world’s greatest concert halls – including Carnegie Hall, Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory and Liszt Academy," the Southbank Centre said ahead of the show.
