Margaret Fingerhut

Regarded as one of the most poetic pianists of her generation, Margaret Fingerhut has captivated audiences in many different countries with her imaginatively designed recital programmes exploring the highways and byways of the piano repertoire. As a concerto soloist she has appeared with all the major orchestras in the UK under eminent conductors such as Leonard Slatkin, Rudolf Barshai, Paul Daniel, Sir Edward Downes and Vernon Handley, and performed in venues such as the Royal Festival Hall, Royal Albert Hall and the Barbican. She is often heard on BBC Radio 3 and Classic FM, as well as on many radio stations internationally, and her film and television work has included an appearance in Testimony, Tony Palmer’s film about Shostakovich. Her extensive and eclectic discography for Chandos has received worldwide critical acclaim and reflects her long-standing fascination with lesser-known repertoire, including works by Bax, Berkeley, Bloch, Dukas, Falla, Grieg, Howells, Leighton, Novák, Stanford and Suk. A number of her recordings have been selected as Editor’s Choice and Critics’ Choice in the magazine Gramophone, and two of her Bax recordings were short-listed for Gramophone awards. About her most recent release, of Edgar Bainton’s Concerto fantasia with the BBC Philharmonic and Paul Daniel, International Piano wrote: ‘One of the most radiantly musical of pianists, she plays with such alluring sensitivity and effortless command that one cannot help but be won over.’  www.margaretfingerhut.co.uk
