About

With childhood abuse, drug addiction and suicide attempts behind him, James Rhodes is not your typical concert pianist, but with his passion and rock-star aura, he is bringing new audiences to classical piano.

In 'Piano Man', James plays the music of his favourite composers, including Bach, Beethoven and Chopin, many of whom had, like James, troubled lives. In this highly personal collection, James explains how they’ve given him solace in his darkest moments and why we should all be listening.

With stunning solo piano performances and witty insight into these lives, 'Piano Man' is an exciting and radical new approach.
