“The audience, as one, was agog…Osborne’s attack is ferocious and fearless, his tenderness is beyond words. His self appears subsumed in service to the composer. This is the best it gets.” – The Observer, London

Formally recognized as 2013’s Instrumentalist of the Year at the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Awards, Steven Osborne is renowned for his idiomatic approach to a wide variety of repertoire: from the mainstream classical works of Mozart, Beethoven, and Brahms to the rarified worlds of Messiaen, Tippett, and Britten.
