Steven Osborne’s formidably successful last season reached a climax with his performance of the Britten Piano Concerto at the 2016 Proms in the Royal Albert Hall.
For his first and eagerly anticipated appearance in SJE International Piano Series he is presenting a programme that encapsulates the astonishing achievements of two giants of piano composition: Beethoven’s forward-looking harmonies and style in his last Piano Sonatas and the secret intimacy of Brahms’ Intermezzi Op. 117.
