Keval Shah performs extensively as a song accompanist, and his recital schedule has taken him across the UK and Europe, including to the Aldeburgh, Edinburgh, Oxford Lieder and Leeds Lieder Festivals, and to the Danish National Centre of the Performing Arts. Recent competition successes include awards at the Elena Gerhardt Lieder Prize and the Rex Stephens/Joan Chissell Schumann Lieder Prize, as well as winning the Oxford Lieder Young Artist Platform with regular duo partner Michael Mofidian. Engagements in the 2017/18 season include performances of Wolf’s complete Mörike Lieder and Italienisches Liederbuch, and debut recitals at the Wigmore Hall and St John’s, Smith Square.
Keval graduated from Trinity Hall, Cambridge in 2015, with double-first class honours and all the major Music prizes, before reading for a Master’s degree at the Royal Academy of Music in London. He is now a Fellow of the Royal Academy, and continues to study with Michael Dussek, Malcolm Martineau and Audrey Hyland.
Keval is a Britten Pears Young Artist and an Oxford Lieder Young Artist, and is a member of the Academy’s prestigious Song Circle, with whom he has given recitals for the Park Lane Group and Austrian Cultural Forum.
He is extremely grateful for the generous support of the Winifred Christie Trust scholarship, and the Countess of Munster Musical Trust. This is his debut performance at the Heidelberger Frühling.
