Emmanuel Despax is a rising star on the UK and international piano scene. He has performed at the Wigmore and Cadogan Halls in London, with orchestras including the CBSO.

His debut concerto recording, with the Orpheus Sinfonia under Thomas Carroll, features the premiere recording of Stephen Gossís Piano Concerto, inspired by the designs of Thomas Heatherwick: the workís premiere performance was the first classical concert in which audiences were invited to bring their ipads and tablets, to watch an interactive display designed to accompany the music.

The work is accompanied by two similarly expressive and characterful works, Saint-SaŽnsí ever-popular Piano Concerto No.2 and Franckís 'Variations Symphoniques'.

ďWelsh composer Stephen Goss draws on a variety of sources for his eminently listenable music. Despite the eclectic nature of his influences, which range from Beethovenís late piano music to the films of former Python Terry Gilliam, Gossís musical language comes across as brilliantly integrated.Ē - International Record Review
