Biography

James Lisney (born 6 May 1962) is an international concert pianist. He studied with Phyllis Sellick and John Barstow – and early success was achieved after he gained representation by the Young Concert Artists Trust. He has gained particular distinction for his collaborative work with Emma Kirkby, Alexander Baillie and Paul Barritt, and has appeared as soloist with many major orchestras. In the early 1980s he arranged the music for several of Jeff Minter's games for the Commodore 64, including Hover Bovver, Revenge of the Mutant Camels, and Sheep in Space. Since 2000 he has pioneered two major initiatives: an innovative series of concerts at London's South Bank called Schubertreise - a concept that he has adapted to various other cyclic presentations in other European venues; and a record company called Woodhouse Editions to add to his previous discography on companies such as BIS, Olympia, Naxos, Carlton and Somm. In 2009 he made his US debut with a short residency at Carnegie Recital Hall and consolidated his work in the Netherlands with a solo debut at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw.
