Liga Korne is a Latvian pianist currently based in the UK. A recent graduate of the Royal Northern College of Music, she received numerous prizes during her study years, including the RNCM Piano Duo Prize for the performance of Messiaen’s monumental Visions de l’Amen for two pianos.
Under the tutelage of Peter Lawson, she completed her degree with First Class Honours (2016) and obtained her master’s degree with Distinction the following year.
As an active performer, Liga made her Wigmore Hall debut in 2016 performing ensemble works by Sir Harrison Birtwistle, and returned the following year to perform as a soloist at the Tansy Davies Study Day. In December 2017 she appeared in the Manchester Mid-Day Concert Society’s series at the Bridgewater Hall.
Liga’s interest in contemporary repertoire has led her to participate in the prestigious London Sinfonietta Academy (2016) and in several multi-media projects involving film, live score and electronics.
In recent years Liga has had the privilege to be mentored by such great pianists as Jerome Lowenthal, Pascal Rogé, Kathy Stott, Konstantin Bogino and Philippe Cassard.
