Colin Stone’s career as a performer began in the late 1980s. He was encouraged by Sir Charles Groves at the finals of the 1985 Young Concert Artist’s Trust and went on to win the Royal Over-Seas League piano competition in 1986. A subsequent début at the Wigmore Hall and numerous broadcasts on BBC Radio 3 helped to establish his growing reputation and has led to performances around the world.
A number of acclaimed recordings followed, both of solo repertoire and chamber music with the London Mozart Trio which he founded in 1989. He is now in demand for concerts and masterclasses in many parts of the world. He has taught at the Chetham’s International Summer School for Pianists and acted as Artistic Director of the Harrow International Summer School for Pianists. Stone is a professor at the Royal Academy of Music and the Royal Northern College of Music.
