Steven Osborne OBE is one of Britain’s most treasured musicians with an immense depth of musicality and exceptional refinement of expression across diverse repertoire be it in Beethoven or Messiaen, Schubert or Ravel, Prokofiev or jazz improvisations. His numerous awards include The Royal Philharmonic Society Instrumentalist of the Year, two BBC Music Magazine Awards and two Gramophone Awards.

Steven’s programme includes three great works for piano. Schumann’s Kinderszenen (Scenes from Childhood) is a touching evocation of childhood. Schubert’s Six Moments musicaux, along with the Impromptus, are probably the most frequently played of his piano music. The Piano sonata, D959, is one of three written in his final year.

Every CD he releases receives enthusiastic reviews. Every concert review is full of praise for his deep understanding of the pieces he is performing, the sensitivity of his playing and his willingness to take risks. Not to be missed!

“This quietly-spoken, self-questioning Scottish pianist has risen to the top tier of pianists worldwide, and this concert was a reminder of the way he combines relentless perfectionism with surprising wildness.”
