Pianist Steven Osborne (OBE) is one of Britain's most treasured musicians. Celebrated for his insightful interpretations, his musicality and technique, Osborne is much sought after as soloist, chamber musician and recitalist. Born in Edinburgh, Steven studied at St Mary's Music School and Royal Northern College of Music, and was one of the first BBC New Generation Artists.
Described by The Observer as "always a player in absolute service to the composer", he has given recitals in all the UK's most prestigious venues as well as internationally and his 29 recordings have accumulated numerous awards in the UK, France, Germany and the USA including two Gramophone Awards, and a clutch of Recordings of the Year from National newspapers.
He recently released a much praised recording of Beethoven's last three piano sonatas, and enjoys a piano duo partnership with Paul Lewis.
"Some pianists gild everything they touch with their own personality; some are like chameleons, finding a new colour for each composer. Last night the wonderful Scottish pianist Steven Osborne did both, which lent the whole evening a miraculous air…every note seemed to vibrate with intelligence"
