Autumn/Winter 2014


Jonathan’s latest Brahms CD is BBC Music Magazine

 Instrumental Choice for their Christmas issue!


Once again Jonathan’s interpretations of Brahms on his newly released new Vol.2 on BIS Records are stunning the critics.  Geoffrey Norris wrote in the Daily Telegraph:


“Plowright has the fiery technique, liquid lyricism and finely mixed palette of tonal colouring to reveal the range of Brahms's music”


From over 200 new releases in November 2014 alone, BBC Music Magazine is amongst the many national and international media who have singled out Jonathan’s new Brahms CD for special attention.  Continuing to be held up alongside the great interpreters of all time, Katchen, Lupu and Arrau, this complete series for BIS is now on course to be one of the finest currently available. 


“behold the most incisive, dramatic, and multi-dimensional account of the composer’s Piano Sonata No. 2 on disc since Katchen and Arrau!”  Jed Distler,
