Noriko Ogawa has achieved considerable renown throughout the world since her success at the 1987 Leeds International Piano Competition. Ogawa’s ‘ravishingly poetic playing’ (Telegraph) sets her apart from her contemporaries and acclaim for her complete Debussy series with BIS Records confirms her as a fine Debussy specialist.

‘…the lingering impression of Ogawa’s performance came in its sonorous breadth and unforced elegance…’ Minnesota Star Tribune

‘…Ogawa responds to every fleeting whimsicality with such clarity and refinement that you are lost in wonder…’ Bryce Morrison, Gramophone

Philip Smith is a pianist who thrives on variety. He gives solo and chamber recitals, concerto performances, and for over two decades has been the regular pianist for the distinguished percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie. He also performs frequently at London’s major concert halls and at international festivals.

‘Philip Smith displayed not only consummate virtuosity but also musicality of the highest level…’ The Times
