Stephen Kovacevich


Born and educated in Los Angeles but having lived in London for many years, Stephen Kovacevich has performed regularly on most of the world’s major concert stages for almost 50 years. Famous for his sensitive yet disciplined playing of the classical piano literature, he is arguably the most admired exponent of Beethoven’s piano music before the public today. Over the years he has visited Australia regularly and played with all the leading orchestras and in solo recitals. He loves Australia and has made many lasting friendships here.
