(Sonata in F, K533), Enescu (Sonata Opus 24), Dorothy Buchanan and Schumann (the great Fantasy in C). The youngest-ever winner of the
prestigious Sydney International Piano Competition, John now performs extensively around the world as a soloist and with his prize-winning
Saguaro Piano Trio. He is at present based in Hamburg, where between recitals and touring he is working towards his doctorate in piano
