£5.99

Product description

John Ogdon & Brenda Lucas play Debussy and Bizet

John Ogdon was an English pianist and composer. He won first prize at the London Liszt Competition in 1961 and consolidated his growing international reputation by winning another first prize at the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow in 1962, jointly with Vladimir Ashkenazy. Ogdon was able to play most pieces at sight and had committed a huge range of pieces to memory. In more familiar repertoire, he revealed deep musical sensibilities, always buttressed by a colossal technique. He also recorded a number of duo-piano works with his wife, Brenda Lucas. In 1973 he experienced a severe breakdown; his illness was initially diagnosed as schizophrenia, but then changed to manic depression (now referred to as bipolar disorder). He died in August 1989 of pneumonia, brought on by undiagnosed diabetes.
