Performers

Jayson Gillham Piano

Internationally praised for his compelling performances, Australian-British pianist Jayson Gillham is recognised as one of the finest pianists of his generation. After receiving numerous prizes from some of the world’s leading piano competitions including the Leeds and Van Cliburn, it was Jayson’s win at the 2014 Montreal International Music Competition that brought him to international attention. His outstanding performance of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No 4 was praised in the Canadian press and described as being played ‘with absorbing and relentless elegance.’

In May 2015 Jayson signed a three-album recording contract with ABC Classics. His debut recital album featuring works by Bach, Schubert and Chopin was released in October 2016 and immediately reached the No 1 spot in both the Core Classical and Classical Crossover ARIA charts. This first release was soon followed by Jayson’s highly acclaimed live recording of Beethoven Piano Concerto No 4 with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Vladimir Ashkenazy. Jayson’s next CD album recorded in 2017 of works by Medtner and Rachmaninov with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and Benjamin Northey received unanimous praise and was Recording of the Month at the Limelight Magazine. His solo album Romantic Bach, featuring original works and virtuoso piano transcriptions, was released internationally in January 2019.
