As many of you will recall, in May 2014 at the age of 17, concert pianist Martin James Bartlett burst onto the classical music scene in a storm of applause as he won the ‘BBC Young Musician of the Year’ with a breathtaking performance of Rachmaninov. Little surprise then, that successes at the BBC Proms and being invited to perform at the Queen’s 90th Birthday Thanksgiving Service in 2016 were swiftly to follow, as well as concerts in a host of other renowned venues at home and abroad. More recently, Martin received a standing ovation at his unforgettable performance here in Milverton last May, playing the programme of music he was, soon after, to take across the Atlantic for performance at the very prestigious Van Cliburn Piano Competition in Fort Worth ,Texas, where he was the only player chosen to represent the UK alongside 29 other talented young hopefuls drawn from across the globe.
