Stephen Kovacevich is one of the finest concert pianists alive. He made his début at the age of 11, and in 1961 he took the Wigmore Hall by storm as a 21-year old (at the time known as Stephen Bishop). For over half a century Stephen Kovacevich has been a stellar performer of music stretching from Bach to the most challenging works of the 20th century. Crucially, Kovacevich has always enjoyed interpreting composers’ late works – a fascination that becomes more and more significant to the performances of this rare artist with every passing year.
