Norfolk And Norwich Festival 2013: Steven Osborne
Messiaen - Vingt regards sur l’enfant-Jésus
Steven Osborne is one of the most versatile and thought-provoking instrumentalists of our time. The breathtaking range of his palette finds full expression in Messiaen’s intricate piano cycle, a passionately spiritual meditation on the childhood of Christ that reflects the profound nature of the composer’s faith.
The twenty pieces that comprise Vingt regards sur l’enfant-Jésus make immense demands of the performer. Steven Osborne’s recording of the cycle was called ‘awe-inspiring’ by The Sunday Times, while Gramophone celebrated its ‘towering authority and technical achievement’.
Scottish classical pianist and winner of the BBC Young Musician Of The Year Competition and Royal Philharmonic Society Instrumentalist Of The Year.
Concerto performances take Steven Osborne to orchestras all over the world including visits to the Yomiuri Nippon Symphony, Deutsches Sinfonieorchester Berlin, Vienna Symphony, Salzburg Mozarteum, Oslo Philharmonic, Finnish Radio Symphony, Danish National Radio, Royal Flemish Philharmonic, RTVE Madrid, Sydney Symphony, Australian Chamber Orchestra, Oregon Symphony and the Dallas Symphony Orchestra.
