Leon McCawley won first prize in the 1993 International Beethoven Piano Competition in Vienna and second prize at the Leeds International Piano Competition the same year. Since then his concert performances and discography have established him as a pianist of integrity and variety, bringing freshness and vitality to the classical, romantic and 20th century repertoire.
"[McCawley is] a thoughtful, keenly intelligent artist in peak form, who brings a wealth of pianistic resources to this incomparable music." Gramophone, January 2021
