Steven Osborne takes audience on five star musical adventure

Published: 01/02/2016

Steven Osborne’s Friday afternoon concert, Osborne’s PianoFrançaise was well received by both audience members and reviewers alike.Michael Tumelty from the Herald had this to say as a part of his five star review:

“There was a wonderful little scene on Friday afternoon at the end of pianist Steven Osborne’s recital when, following the pianist’s beguiling then ravishing performances of music by Debussy and Rachmaninov, an encore was clearly in demand. “I’m going to offer you a choice,” quoth Osborne: “Either one by Debussy or one by Rachmaninov.” Ye gods I thought the roof was going to come off as the Russophiles bellowed while the Francophiles, rather more demurely, called for the other chap. Rachmaninov won the day, and the crowded house was rewarded with one of the composer’s lush, red-blooded and totally-seductive Preludes.”
