James Lisney is an internationally renowned concert pianist. He studied at the Royal College of Music in London in the early 1980s with Phyllis Sellick. Initiatives, such as his Schubertreise series at London’s SouthBank Centre, and his extensive Beethoven Project for the recording company Woodhouse Editions, have provided a platform for his wide-ranging musical sympathies, which include chamber music, solo recitals, concertos with many of the major orchestras and accompanying instrumentals and singers.
Highlights of his career include residencies at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw and Carnegie Recital Hall in New York. He has made numerous recordings. James has generously supported The Amber Trust over a number of years, most recently through his series of Petits Concerts at the 1901 Arts Club in London.
