"Steven Osborne unleashed a spectacular performance of Britten’s Piano Concerto, packed to the roof with fun, wit, fireworks, dazzling pianism (it sounded as though he was having a ball) some aching lyricism in the slow movement and a zesty, Prokofiev-like bite. A cracking piece, brilliantly played."
- The Herald
The young Benjamin Britten meets the old Johannes Brahms: the young force, full of impatience for what the future will bring, facing the established value that looks back contentedly on what has been. It is precisely this contrast between the two masters - closely linked by their special way of translating human emotions - that creates an inspiring and poignant experience.
