At the age of 18 Ben Goldscheider was a Concerto Finalist in the BBC Young Musician Competition performing with the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the Barbican.
Highlights since then include his debut at the BBC Proms in 2018, appearances as soloist with the Lucerne Symphony, Britten Sinfonia, Aurora Orchestra, English Chamber, City of London Sinfonia, Manchester Camerata, the Prague Philharmonia and Sinfonie Orchester Berlin at the Berlin Philharmonie.  In 2018 his debut album was released to critical acclaim, and he was selected as a BBC Music Magazine Rising Star and Gramophone Magazine One to Watch. He was selected for representation by Young Classical Artists Trust (YCAT) in 2019.
A committed chamber musician, Ben has collaborated with Julian Prégardien at Wigmore Hall, Sergei Babayan at the Verbier Festival, Daniel Barenboim and  Martha Argerich at Salzburg Festival (Haus Für Mozart) and in Buenos Aires, Matthias Pintscher at the Pierre Boulez-Saal and with Elena Bashkirova and Karl-Heinz Steffens at the Intonations Festival in Berlin. This season Ben makes his debut with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the Mozarteum Orchestra in the Mozartwoche Festival (Salzburg).  He returns to give a solo recital at the Pierre Boulez Saal and takes part in the Vinterfest in Sweden, and the Jerusalem Festival in Israel.  He continues to give recitals throughout the UK.

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 is frequently broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and has featured on BBC Two, BBC Four, Classic FM and Sky Arts. He won the British Contemporary Piano Competition in 2006 and was selected for representation by Young Classical Artists Trust (YCAT) in 2011.
