Described by the Moscow Kommersant as “an outstanding virtuoso -one of the finest players of his generation”, and by Tom Service in The Guardian as “pianist, author, lecturer and all-round virtuoso”, Kenneth Hamilton is well-known as a recitalist and recording artist of emotional depth and striking originality.
