Jonathan Plowright has been described as ’one of the finest living pianists’ by Gramophone magazine. Gold Medallist at the RAM, Peabody Conservatory Concours winner and a Fulbright Scholar, after his studies Jonathan was a prize-winner in many competitions, including Gold Medal First Prize Winner of the Royal Overseas League Competition, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra Awards and the European Piano Competition.

He has been on the distinguished piano roster of Hyperion Records for many years and has released a string of 13 successful CDs. He has received many prestigious accolades, been nominated for an International Classical Music Award, and In August 2017 Jonathan will release his first CD on the Warner Classics label.
