 Martin Jones has been one of Britain's most highly regarded solo pianists since first coming to international attention in 1968 when he received the Dame Myra Hess Award. That same year he made his London debut at the Queen Elizabeth Hall and his New York debut at Carnegie Hall. He has since been in demand for recitals and concerto performances on both sides of the Atlantic. He is a prolific recording artist and his many discs for Nimbus Records include the complete works of 17 composers including Mendelssohn, Brahms, Debussy, Grainger, Szymanowski and many first recordings of Spanish music. He has recorded the complete piano and concerto music of Richard Rodney Bennett for Metronome Records as well as many chamber music discs. The latest issue will be the complete works of Franz Reizenstein for Lyrita Records and Roger Ducasse for Nimbus Records. Future projects include two concertos by Francis Shaw and piano works by Graham Hair. He has also recorded four releases on the PnOV A Recordings label in the American Piano Music Series.
