A spokesman said: “Following Sam’s success in The BBC Young Musician of the Year he was awarded the prestigious Isserlis Award.

“He studied in Vienna with Paul Badura-Skoda and was mentored at the Royal Academy of Music, London, by Maria Curcio, a pupil of Artur Schnabel.

“We are lucky to include Blackpool in the season’s impressive list of forthcoming concerts by Sam Haywood which includes London, Vienna, Washington, Jakarta, St Petersburg and Lima, Peru.

“The New York Times said he performs with ‘passionate flair, a warm touch and sparkling clarity’.”
