Nominated by the Barbican as an Echo Rising Star for the 2021/22 season, Ben Goldscheider has given recitals at major concert halls across Europe including at the Concertgebouw, Musikverein, Pierre Boulez Saal, Elbphilharmonie, Koln Philharmonie and Wigmore Hall amongst others.

Ben has performed with the BBC Symphony Orchestra conducted by Sakari Oramo and made his BBC Proms concerto debut in 2022 performing the Ethel Smyth Concerto for Horn and Violin with Elena Urioste and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra conducted by Kazuki Yamada. Ben has also appeared as soloist with the Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg, Aurora Orchestra, Britten Sinfonia, English Chamber, Royal Philharmonic, London Mozart Players, Lucerne Symphony, Manchester Camerata, Prague Philharmonia and Sinfonie Orchester Berlin.

Ben is a member of the Pierre Boulez Ensemble and principal horn of the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra. He was a prize-winner at the 2019 YCAT International Auditions and a BBC Young Musician Concerto Finalist in 2016.

“…it’s Goldscheider’s horn, golden and glorious, that properly takes the crown…” – BBC Music Magazine
“…he is beginning to enrich and potentially transform the repertoire for the horn, and his rising international profile will represent the UK strongly on the global stage…” – Critics’ Circle

Noted for the integrity and breadth of his musicianship as soloist, chamber musician and recording artist, Richard Uttley has been recognised for his ‘musical intelligence and pristine facility’ (International Record Review), ‘amazing decisiveness’, and ‘tumultuous performance’ (Daily Telegraph). His playing has been frequently broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and has featured on BBC Two, BBC Four, BBC World Service, Classic FM and Sky Arts. He won first prize in the British Contemporary Piano Competition in 2006 and the Young Classical Artists Trust (YCAT) international auditions in 2011.

Richard studied with Ian Buckle at the Junior School of the Royal Northern College of Music, before going on to read Music at Clare College, Cambridge (graduating with a double first in 2008), and studying with Martin Roscoe at Guildhall School. His London debut at the Southbank Centre’s Purcell Room in 2010 was described by The Times as a ‘brilliant recital’.

Richard has released several solo recordings to critical acclaim and appeared at venues and festivals including: Auditorium du Louvre (Paris), Banff Centre (Alberta), Bath Festival, Bridgewater Hall, BOZAR (Brussels), Cadogan Hall, Elbphilharmonie (Hamburg), Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Fundacíon Juan March (Madrid), Gulbenkian Foundation (Lisbon), Het Concertgebouw (Amsterdam), Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, Klangspuren Festival (Innsbruck), Kings Place, Konzerthaus Berlin, Modulus Festival (Vancouver), Musikverein (Vienna), National Centre for Performing Arts (Mumbai), Queen Elizabeth Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival, and Wigmore Hall, and has toured in China and Colombia.

Highlights this season include duo recitals at Lucerne Festival and Wigmore Hall with horn player Ben Goldscheider, and in trio (with Callum Smart) at Wigmore Hall and on tour in Sweden; the release of a new disc for Delphian Records with violist Jordan Bak; and chamber music with composer-clarinettist Mark Simpson.

Richard is a Piano professor at the Royal College of Music and Professor of Academic Studies at Guildhall School of Music & Drama. He also teaches at the RCM Junior Department, City, University of London and the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama. In 2021 he became a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
