James Rhodes Live in Brighton

In 2008 / 09 James Rhodes saw his profile go from complete unknown to rising star, attracting celebrity followers including Stephen Fry and Sir David Tang. He swiftly went on to headline London’s historical Roundhouse, where he was the first classical pianist to perform since its re-opening. In 2010 he made his television debut in the BBC Four documentary Chopin: The Women behind the Music and in 2011 went on to present and perform in his very own television series, James Rhodes: Piano Man, on Sky Arts. This new disc – recorded live at The Old Market theatre in Brighton – captures the energy of Rhodes in concert as he performs and entertainingly discusses works by Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, Rachmaninoff, and more in this eighty-five-minute programme.

‘Performances of such natural ease and brilliance that no one can resist.’

Geoff Brown, The Times, Roundhouse concert review, 15 May 2009

‘This is impressive, conveyed with conviction and dazzling technique.’

Ivan Hewett, The Daily Telegraph

‘From the outset, it is evident that Rhodes is a thoughtful and attentive pianist.’

Richard Whitehouse, International Piano
