With an extraordinary career spanning over five decades, Martin Roscoe is unarguably one of the UK’s best loved pianists. He has a repertoire of over 100 concertos, performed or recorded, and works regularly with many of the UK’s leading orchestras, touring extensively every season as recitalist and chamber musician. Martin has made over 600 broadcasts, including seven BBC Prom appearances and many commercial recordings for labels including Hyperion, Chandos and Naxos. He has recorded the complete piano music of Dohnányi, Nielsen and Szymanowski and four discs in the Hyperion Romantic Piano Concerto series. For the Deux-Elles label, Martin has recorded the complete Beethoven piano sonatas, which received unanimous critical acclaim. Martin is Professor of Piano at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and Artistic Director of Ribble Valley International Piano Week and the Manchester Chamber Concerts Society.
Martin's programme is drawn from the heart of the Austro-German Classical repertoire for which he is especially loved. Haydn's subtitle 'un piccolo divertimento' belies the intricacy and ingenuity of his F minor Variations; and the Mozart Rondo which follows is similarly deft, a composition of depth and intensity from the composer-virtuoso at the height of his mature style. A triptych of suitably autumnal pieces by Brahms offers an interlude of warmth and contemplation before this glorious programme concludes with the drama of Beethoven's towering late A flat Sonata.
