Growing up in outback Australia, Jayson Gillham travelled 500 kilometres every week to attend piano lessons. Now, after a stratospheric rise that has seen him acclaimed as one of the finest talents of the new generation, he presents his much-anticipated debut album of Bach, Schubert and Chopin.

Praised for his ďabsorbing and relentless eleganceĒ (The Montreal Gazette), and possessing ďa beautiful bell-like tone, a great sense of expressive lyricism, and virtuosityĒ (The Australian), Gillham moved to London in 2007, since when he has performed at venues including the Royal Festival Hall and Wigmore Hall in London and Louvre Auditorium in Paris, and with groups including the London Philharmonic, Nashville Symphony and English Chamber Orchestras.

This disc of Bach, Schubert and Chopin presents music of unparalleled beauty, vitality and joy by three masters of keyboard writing. The works highlight different aspects of Jaysonís superb musicianship. The album opens with the youthful exuberance of Bachís Toccata in C minor (Bach was around the same age when he wrote it as Jayson when he recorded it). Schubertís lyrical A major Sonata showcases the sheer beauty of Jaysonís playing; and the Chopin Sonata in B minor, composed just five years before Chopin died, displays a depth in Jaysonís interpretative approach usually reserved for pianists of much more mature years.

To record the album, Jayson travelled to the Reitstadel in Neumarkt, Germany to work with renowned Tonmeister Andreas Neubronner (Murray Perahia, Arcadi Volodos, Khatia Buniatishvili).
