Steven Osborne is one of the UK’s foremost pianists, with residencies in London, Antwerp, and Bath as well as at CBSO, and numerous awards to his name including RPS Instrumentalist of the Year 2013. His programme includes Prokofiev’s Piano Sonata No. 7 in B-flat, part of the ‘War Sonatas’ rumoured to be expressing Prokofiev’s true (and less than complimentary) opinions of Stalin, as well as one of Schubert’s last piano sonatas, written in the months before his death in 1828.
