Since winning BBC Young Musician of the Year in 2014, Martin James Bartlett has performed with orchestras including the BBC Symphony Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Tokyo Symphony Orchestra and the Royal College of Music Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Sir Bernard Haitink. In 2016 Martin performed at Her Majesty The Queen’s 90th Birthday thanksgiving service, which was broadcast live on BBC One from St. Paul’s Cathedral.
Having made his BBC Proms debut in 2015 with Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, Bartlett also played the same piece with the Ulster Orchestra at the BBC Proms “Last Night” celebrations.
George Harliono regularly performs alongside eminent artists such as Lang Lang and Denis Matsuev. Most recently he appeared with The Mariinsky Orchestra in Vladivostok under the baton of Valery Gergiev. In 2016 his performance of Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No.1 at the Great Hall of The Moscow Conservatory was broadcast live on Russian national TV and streamed live on Medici TV. George has been awarded prizes in numerous competitions throughout the world and upcoming engagements include recitals at the Wiener Konzerthaus and The Russian Academy of Arts in Moscow.
We are thrilled both artists will appear together for the first time with an exciting and varied programme for solo piano and piano duet.
