TWO PIANO DUO


Brothers Jonathan and Tom perform internationally in instrumental combinations which cover the entire keyboard spectrum, including Piano Duet, Piano & Organ, and Harmonium & Piano. Their online performance videos have totalled over 30 million views and their regular online concerts since March 2020 reached a worldwide audience of well over 1 million people.

Recent and forthcoming performances include concerts across the UK, as well as Spain (Madrid National Auditorium), France (Toulouse Organ Festival, Evreux Cathedral), Germany (Staatsoper Berlin, European Harmonium Festival), Belgium (Salle Philharmonique Liège), Norway (Stavanger Concert Hall), Latvia (Liepaja Organ Festival), Switzerland (Fribourg Organ Festival), Taiwan (Taipei National Concert Hall, Kaohsiung Center for the Arts), Singapore (Victoria Concert Hall) and South Korea (Lotte Concert Hall, Seoul).

Scott Brothers Duo are the winners of the 2019 ECHO (European Cities of Historical Organs) competition to create a performance which introduces the pipe organ to a young audience. Their project combines animation and organ music and will be performed at major festivals across Europe in 2021.

Born in Manchester, Jonathan and Tom both studied at Chetham’s School of Music and at the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM).

Tom read Music on the joint course at The University of Manchester, gained the Sir Thomas Beecham Medal for Excellence in his degree, and achieved a distinction in his Masters degree. He made his concerto debut with the Hallé Orchestra, aged 17, with Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No.1 at The Bridgewater Hall, Manchester. Tom is also a keen artist and animator, and creates animations to accompany live classical concerts. This has led to many exciting projects (including commissions by the BBC) and concert performances with orchestras and ensembles worldwide (Canada, USA, Taiwan, South Korea, and Australia). As a composer, Tom's work ranges from instrumental to acousmatic compositions and audio/visual works, and his music has been performed across Europe and USA. He completed his PhD in electroacoustic composition at The University Of Manchester (supported by AHRC funding).

Jonathan continued his studies in USA and Holland, won the coveted Worshipful Company of Musicians WT Best Scholarship and gold medal, and is a Freeman of The City of London. Jonathan has been a member of the keyboard staff at RNCM since 2001 and is Associate Artist of The Bridgewater Hall, Manchester. Jonathan’s recent performances have included numerous international recital and concerto appearances as pianist and organist. In 2017 Jonathan gave the world premiere of the new organ concerto '6000 Pipes!' by Sir Karl Jenkins for Hull UK City of Culture and he toured this work throughout 2019, including a special gala performance at the Royal Albert Hall, London with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by the composer. Other recent highlights include a series of Concerto performances with the National Chinese Orchestra of Taiwan, a European concerto tour with the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra, and a solo evening organ recital from the Royal Albert Hall, London for the 2020 BBC Proms.

Scott Brothers Duo have recorded several CDs on their own label to great critical acclaim. The discs have received wide international airplay, including their own special editions of BBC Radio 2’s ‘The Organist Entertains’. Their latest CD recording “Piano and Organ Favourites” was released in November 2020.
