The prolific and award-winning pianist Steven Osborne, “one of Britain’s most treasured musicians”, plays Mozart’s charming Piano Concerto No. 12, a standout work of lyrical peace and effusive melody. We welcome back Maestro Carlos Kalmar in our season-opener of vibrant classics, interspaced by the heavenly invocation of American composer Aaron Jay Kernis’s Musica celestis.
Steven Osborne's insightful and idiomatic interpretations of diverse repertoire show an immense musical depth. His numerous awards include The Royal Philharmonic Society Instrumentalist of the Year (2013) and two Gramophone Awards. Born in Scotland he studied with Richard Beauchamp at St. Mary's Music School in Edinburgh and Renna Kellaway at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. He is a Visiting Professor at the Royal Academy of Music and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh in March 2014.
