Martin James Bartlett named BBC Young Musician keyboard finalist

13 May 2014



Martin James Bartlett, 17, has won the keyboard category final of BBC Young Musician.

Bartlett, from Hornchurch, Essex, impressed the judging panel – which included pianists Ashley Wass and Noriko Ogawa – with a varied recital. Bartlett gave a controlled performance of Bach’s Partita No 2, Capriccio, followed by the Petrarch Sonnet 104 by Liszt. He closed with a witty rendition of Moszkowski’s Etincelles and the fourth movement from Barber’s Piano Sonata Op 26. The judges praised his programming and Wass observed that Bartlett conveyed a ‘compelling level of musicianship’.

The other finals were Isata Kanneh-Mason (17), Hayley Parkes (18), Ning Hui See (18) and Julian Trevelyan (15).

Bartlett – who also competed in the 2012 instalment of the competition – will participate in the semi finals, broadcast on BBC Four on Saturday 17 May at 7pm. He joins strings category winner, William Dutton (19), percussionist Elliott Gaston-Ross (15), woodwind champion Sophie Westbrooke (15) and the as-yet unknown brass finalist (to be announced 16 May).

The BBC Young Musician 2014 final will take place at Usher Hall in Edinburgh on Sunday 18 May. It will be broadcast the same day on BBC Four at 7pm and on BBC Radio 3 at 7:30pm.

Over 450 entries were received for the contest from musicians aged between 8-18 years old. Former winners and finalists include Benjamin Grosvenor, Stephen Hough, Leon McCawley and Lucy Parham.
