BBC Young Musician of the Year 2014 Martin James Bartlett to Play in Harrogate
If you think back to 2014, you will remember that the winner of the prestigious BBC Young Musician of the Year Competition was an incredibly talented young pianist by the name of Martin James Bartlett. Bartlett won the title of BBC Young Musician of the Year at the tender age of seventeen with his show stopping rendition of Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. Since winning the competition Martin James Bartlett has wasted no time in making a name for himself as a professional concert pianist.
Bartlett’s musical talent is incredible for such a young man, and it is astounding that by the age of just 12 he had already achieved three grade 8 distinctions. From there onwards, Bartlett’s list of achievements has continued to grow at a rapid speed and shows no sign of stopping.
