One of Britain’s foremost pianists, Leon McCawley has forged a highly successful career since winning first prize in the 1993 International Beethoven Piano Competition in Vienna and second prize at the Leeds International Competition the same year. His many recordings have garnered rave reviews, most recently his recordings of Haydn’s piano sonatas. With this programme he brings three great Viennese composers together, culminating in Schubert’s dramatic C minor sonata, composed in the last months of his life. 

“A musician of great finesse.” Diapason

“Light of touch, stylistically assured and brimful of intelligence and wit.”
