The title of Colin Stone’s recital programme comes from a phrase that his teacher, Edith Vogel, used to describe Schubert.
Colin Stone’s career as a performer began in the late 1980s. He was encouraged by Sir Charles Groves at the finals of the 1985 Young Concert Artist’s Trust and went on to win the Royal Over-Seas League piano competition in 1986. A debut at the Wigmore Hall and numerous broadcasts on BBC Radio3 helped to establish his growing reputation and has led to performances around the world. A number of acclaimed recordings followed, both of solo repertoire and chamber music with the London Mozart Trio, which he founded in 1989. He made his debut as a soloist with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Grant Llewelyn in 2001, and gave his first cycle of Beethoven’s Piano Sonatas in 2005.
