“I haven’t heard playing from any recent pianist that surpasses Roscoe’s” – BBC Music Magazine


With an extraordinary career spanning over four decades, Martin Roscoe is unarguably one of the UK’s best-loved pianists. Renowned for his versatility at the keyboard, Martin is equally at home in concerto, recital and chamber performances. In an ever more distinguished career, his enduring popularity and the respect in which he is universally held are built on a deeply thoughtful musicianship allied to an easy rapport with audiences and fellow musicians alike.

With a repertoire of over 100 concertos performed or recorded, Martin works regularly with many of the UK’s leading orchestras, having especially close links with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Hallé, Northern Chamber Orchestra and with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. Martin has worked with many eminent conductors, including performances with Sir Simon Rattle, Sir Mark Elder and Christoph von Dohnányi.
An equally prolific recitalist, Martin has also performed regularly across Europe, the Far East, Australasia and South Africa. His chamber music partnerships include associations with Peter Donohoe, Tasmin Little, Jennifer Pike, Matthew Trusler and the Brodsky and Endellion Quartets.

One of his most important chamber music collaborations has developed with the Cropper Welsh Roscoe Trio, who have performed many times across the UK.

Teaching has always been an important part of Martin’s life and the development of young talent helps him to constantly re-examine and re-evaluate his own playing.
