On Sunday 17 March we welcome back the Scottish pianist Steven Osborne who, on 9th April 1989, won the inaugural Brighton Piano Competition. Steven has since played with Barry and the Brighton Phil a further four times and is now one of the country’s most influential and brilliant pianists – equally at home in the recording studio and on the concert platform. You can read more about him on his website at: http://www.stevenosborne.co.uk/
Steven Osborne is looking forward to performing Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No.3 with the Brighton Phil at Brighton Dome. For those of you not on Twitter see his tweets below (from September and December 2018):
Steven has recorded a CD of Rachmaninov’s music (Études-Tableaux Op.33 and Op.39) which was released by Hyperion last July – CDA68188.
You can listen to a mini-taster of the CD on YouTube by clicking the on link below:
