2012: Instrumentalist

Announced 14 May 2013
supported by the Musicians Benevolent Fund

Steven Osborne

Steven Osborne’s performances up and down the country this year have confirmed his pre-eminence among British pianists. His un-showy brilliance, integrity, and very wide repertoire have long marked him out, but what now emerges most strongly is the unique magic of his sound combined with a profound musical intelligence.
