Pianist Jeremy Eskenazi is a true rising star with a glittering career already. His first CD for Divine Art features music relating to water - from the gentle (Debussy) to the ferocious (Beethoven), with works by Chopin and Liszt, and several new pieces by leading British-Australian composer Alicia Grant.

Grant is known for her specially commissioned work, Anzac Anthem, for choir and organ, which was premiered by the Choir of Westminster Abbey in the presence of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh in 2005. This anthem continues to be regularly performed at Westminster Abbey and other memorial services that mark Australia and New Zealandís national day of remembrance.

Born in Paris in 1978, French-British pianist Jeremy Eskenazi is regularly invited to give concerts, seminars, workshops and lecture-recitals around the world. The holder of a PhD in Performance Practice from the Royal Academy of Music (University of London), he has performed in many venues, such as the Festival Chopin in Paris, the Queen Elizabeth Hall and St-Martin-in-the-Fields in London, the Holywell Music Room in Oxford, and the Istanbul Opera House.

All of Alicia Grant's works are premiere recordings.
