Yamaha Pianos in conversation with Peter Donohoe and Martin Roscoe

A humorous, expansive and insightful discussion with two of the world's most respected pianists, Martin Roscoe and Peter Donohoe (who often perform together as a duo). Filmed at the Ribble Valley International Piano Week, they discuss what triggered their love of the piano, their most memorable performances and preferences between live concerts and recording. They also provide in-depth opinions on Yamaha pianos and the CFX in particular.

Equally at home in concerto, recital and chamber performances, Martin Roscoe is a highly versatile concert pianist. He enjoys a distinguished career and boasts a repertoire of over 100 concertos performed or recorded. He works regularly with most UK orchestras and with eminent conductors including Simon Rattle, Mark Elder and Christoph von Dohnányi.

Martin is one Britain's most prolific recitalists and also performs regularly across Europe, the Far East, Australasia and South Africa. His chamber music partnerships include long-standing associations with Peter Donohoe. He is an acclaimed teacher and is currently a Professor of Piano at the Guildhall School of Music in London.

Peter Donohoe was Silver Medal winner at the 7th International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow in 1982. He returned to Moscow in 2011 as a jury member for the 14th International Tchaikovsky Competition. Since that time he has built an extraordinary worldwide career spanning over 40 years and encompassing a huge repertoire. As well as continually exploring many other avenues in music making, he is acclaimed as one of the foremost pianists of our time, for his musicianship, stylistic versatility and commanding technique.

Peter has worked with many of the world's foremost orchestras, and conductors, including Christoph Eschenbach, Neeme Jarvi, Lorin Maazel, Kurt Masur, Andrew Davis and Yevgeny Svetlanov. More recently he has appeared as soloist with the next generation of excellent conductors such as Gustavo Dudamel, Robin Ticciati and Daniel Harding.

He is vice-president of the Birmingham Conservatoire and has been awarded Honorary Doctorates of Music from the Universities of Birmingham, Central England, Warwick, East Anglia, Leicester and The Open University.

Peter was awarded a CBE for services to music in the 2010 New Year’s Honours List.
