At 23, Martin James Bartlett is one of England’s most acclaimed young pianists—and his fame is growing. In 2014, he won the title of BBC Young Musician, and he regularly performs on BBC TV and radio broadcasts. Last March, on behalf of the Royal College of Music, Prince Charles awarded Bartlett the prestigious Queen Mother Rosebowl. Last November, he won both the Harriman-Jewell Series prize, awarded by Series director Clark Morris, and First Prize at the 2019 Young Concert Artists International Auditions.
Martin James Bartlett has stirred up the British music scene. He was one of the youngest soloists to ever debut at the Proms, London’s summer music festival, and his performance of Rhapsody in Blue drew praise from London’s music critics. The UK Telegraph declared that Bartlett “brought maximum feeling to the music and played with astonishing delicacy and punch.”
