During his illustrious career, Martin Roscoe has become one of the UK’s most loved and respected pianists. With his extensive repertoire, consummate musicianship and immediate connection with audiences, he is in great demand as a concerto soloist, chamber musician and recitalist.
Martin appears regularly at Wigmore Hall and has long-standing associations with many of the UK’s leading orchestras such as the BBC Philharmonic and BBC Scottish Symphony. A prolific recording artist, Martin has a distinguished discography and is one of the most broadcast pianists on BBC radio.
Martin Roscoe is well-known to Portsmouth audiences both through solo piano recitals and through partnerships most notably with the late Peter Cropper who was the inspiration behind this series.
His programme includes another extraordinary work from that last decade of Beethoven’s life, paired with a Schubert sonata composed 18 months after Beethoven’s death, and just a couple of months before Schubert himself died. It is one of a set of three composed in September 1828 along with the great C major string quintet.
‘…the pacing, the expressive energy, the understanding of form, the tension, absolutely wonderful.’
