A regular and welcome visitor to Wigmore Hall, the English pianist has received exceptional praise as an exponent of the Romantic repertoire notably the music of Brahms. Here he selects other major 19th-century works, placing them alongside Jacques Ibert’s delightful 1922 collection of ten ‘stories’ and a rarely-heard transcription of César Franck by Ignaz Friedman – one of a substantial number of virtuoso pianist-composers he has championed.

      • Prélude, fugue et variation Op. 18
        • (transcribed by Ignaz Friedman)
