Graham Johnson

Introduction

'...the indefatigable Graham Johnson - the one-man powerhouse behind a remarkable flowering of accompanied performance and recording over the past four decades.' (Michael Church, The Independent).

Already acclaimed not only as one of the foremost accompanists of our day but also for his major contribution to the development of the song repertoire, Graham Johnson has most recently completed his major recording project of the complete lieder of Schubert for the Hyperion label and has embarked on a similar project of recording the complete lieder of Schumann. He was made an OBE in the 1994 Queen's Birthday Honours list and in 2002 he was created Chevalier in the Ordre des Arts et Lettres by the French Government.  He was also made an Honorary Member of the Royal Philharmonic Society in February 2010. In 2013 he was awarded honorary doctorates by Durham University and The New England Conservatory, and was recipient of The Wigmore Hall Medal.
