    Emmy Award winning comedian Hans Liberg returns to the Cadogan Hall in 2011 for four exclusive concerts.

    The Godfather of comedy and music Hans Liberg brings his inimitable wit and musical virtuosity to London’s Cadogan Hall for four exclusive performances in 2011.

    A sell-out hit in concert halls throughout Europe and critically acclaimed as one of the top piano comics in the world, Liberg is renowned for taking the ‘serious’ out of serious classical music.

    An eccentric joker, in the tradition of Victor Borge and sharing the rare ability to combine musical virtuosity and comedy with performers such as Bill Bailey, this vastly talented Dutch artist leaves audiences breathless – with laughter and amazement - as he romps through a range of musical styles from Mozart to Carl Orff via the Beach Boys and Bach.

    Along the way Liberg provides fascinating and unexpected insights into the links between classical and pop music.

    Tickling funny bones while tinkling the ivories has brought Hans Liberg numerous international awards, including an Emmy for his 1997 television special “Liberg Zaps Himself” and an honourable mention at the Golden Rose Festival in Montreux. In 1998 he was asked to host the Emmy Award Gala in New York. An extra special honour, as he was taking the place of the late Sir Peter Ustinov. In 2005, he performed for Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands as part of the celebrations for her 25th Jubilee.

    “...besides the gags, he is an astonishing pianist. Liberg is the best music lesson you never had”
    The Times

    “He is more than a new Victor Borge. Hans Liberg is a law unto himself and he doesn’t let you forget it.”
    The Scotsman

    ‘From Gerald Hoffnung to Bill Bailey’s ‘Remarkable Guide to the Orchestra’, Liberg is one of a very few classical comedians. …a performer unafraid to make classical music populist.’
    The Times
