review - "What the best performances achieve is the opposite of interpretation; the musician becomes as close a thing to the composer as is possible. And that is what pianist James Dick achieved..." New York Classical Review, October 11, 2019

From his early years as prize winner of some of the world's most prestigious piano awards to his current successful career as an international guest artist, James Dick is well known to music lovers as a man of great talent, vision and class. His playing melds modern-day energy and technique with an Old World graciousness and civility, resulting in a passionate sound that keeps audiences engrossed.
