James Lisney enjoys a rich musical life, moving seamlessly from concerto and recital soloist to chamber musician, song accompanist and pianist director.
For this special recital at the Goods Shed, James is giving his services free in order to help raise funds for and awareness of the project. We are very grateful for his generosity and hope that many of you will acknowledge it by supporting what we can promise will be a recital to savour in the context of the Shed’s wonderful acoustic for classical music.
Initiatives, such as his Schubertreise series at London’s South Bank Centre, his extensive Beethoven Project or the recording company Woodhouse Editions, provide a platform for his wide-ranging musical sympathies.
James Lisney made his Wigmore Hall debut in 1986 and early representation by the Young Concert Artists Trust in London led to a career that has taken him to many prestigious venues and gained invitations to appear with major orchestras.
James Lisney`s repertoire ranges from baroque masterpieces to music of the present day. In the past decade, the music of Schubert and Beethoven have been a central pre-occupation (in performance and in recordings) and he regularly presents cycles of the piano sonatas and relevant chamber music. His recordings (on Naxos, Bis, Somm, Olympia and Carlton) have gained the highest recommendations. His present season sees him performing Schubert cycles in the Oxford International Piano Series, the Leipzig Gewandhaus and, later in 2017, Mumbai.
