Steven Osborne’s standing as one of the great pianists of his generation was publicly affirmed in 2013 with two major awards: The Royal Philharmonic Society Instrumentalist of the Year and his second Gramophone Award, this time in the Instrumental category for his recording of Mussorgsky Pictures at an Exhibition and solo works by Prokofiev. Previous awards include a 2009 Gramophone Award for his recording of Britten’s works for piano and orchestra, as well as first prize at both the Naumburg International Competition (New York) and Clara Haskil Competition.

Lorna Anderson studied with Patricia MacMahon at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, and excelled, winning several awards. In 1984, she won First Prize in the Peter Pears and Royal Overseas League Competitions and in 1986 won the most highly regarded English vocal award, the Purcell-Britten Prize for Concert Singers. Lorna Anderson has appeared in opera, concert and recital with major orchestras and festivals throughout Europe and elsewhere and is a renowned performer of the Baroque repertoire.
