Piano recitals by Barry Douglas
Barry Douglas has established a major international career since winning the Gold Medal at the 1986 Tchaikovsky International Piano Competition, Moscow. Barry has recently embarked on a monumental recording project with Chandos Records – to record the complete works for solo piano of Brahms and Schubert. Having developed a wealth of musical experience in his 35-year career, Barry now feels the time is right to undertake this colossal project. The first disc of works by Brahms was released to critical acclaim in March 2012. The interesting programming of each disc, which has already garnered much critical praise, presents each album as a stand-alone recital, providing a varied and engaging listening experience. Future plans include a play/direct project in which Barry will record both Brahms Piano Concerti with the BBC Symphony Orchestra.
