Jonathan Plowright (piano)

Chopin Ballade Op.47 No.3 in A flat
Chopin Nocturne Op.9 No.3
Schumann Carnaval Op.9
Hailed by reviewers as 'a colossal musical mind' with a 'transcendent technique', Jonathan Plowright is 'one of the finest living pianists' according to Gramophone Magazine.
Jonathan has been recording the complete Brahms solo piano works for BIS Records, the first three volumes were released to tremendous critical acclaim receiving many 5-star reviews in numerous publications including an 'Outstanding' Award from International Record Review, also 'Editor's Choice' for Gramophone, BBC Music Magazine and ABC Limelight Magazine. His interpretations have been compared to those of Lupu, Katchen, Arrau and Pires, and have been described as a 'stunning achievement'.
His warmth and sincerity combine with a superbly assured and powerful technique to create one of the finest performances on record (even when compared to the likes of Curzon and Lupu)
