Jonathan & Tom Scott

Brothers Jonathan and Tom perform in instrumental combinations which cover the entire keyboard

spectrum, including Piano Duet, Piano & Organ, and Harmonium & Piano. 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. This season's concerts have taken Tom on tours across

Europe where he has appeared with the BBC Philharmonic and Nigel Kennedy. Tom is also a keen

artist and animator who has recently completed commissions for the BBC Philharmonic to create

animations to accompany their live classical concerts. His animations are regularly performed

alongside orchestras and ensembles world-wide. 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) and currently lectures in electroacoustic

composition at the RNCM.


Jonathan continued his studies in the USA and Holland, and was awarded the W.T. Best Gold Medal

by the Worshipful Company of Musicians and subsequently received the Freedom of the City of

London. Since 2001 he has been on the keyboard faculty of the RNCM and is Associate Artist of

The Bridgewater Hall where he gives a series of popular lunchtime organ concerts which attract

audiences approaching 1000. Recent concert highlights include mid-Atlantic performances on

Queen Mary 2 and a series of performances as organ and piano soloist at The Royal Albert Hall,

London. His recent performance of Copland Organ Symphony was broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and

has just been released on the Chandos label. Forthcoming performances include solo concerto

appearances with Hallé Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Philharmonic Orchestra and

the premier of a new organ concerto by Karl Jenkins for the 2017 Hull City of Culture.


Scott Brothers Duo have recorded several CDs on their own label to great critical acclaim. The discs

have featured regularly on radio both in the UK and abroad, including a recent one hour special

edition of BBC Radio 2's The Organist Entertains with interviews and recordings. The duo’s online

performance videos have totalled over 2 million views and their latest recording of ‘Duos for Piano

& Organ II' recorded at Victoria Hall, Hanley was described by Organists’ Review as "…an intensely

musical experience where prodigious technique, perfect ensemble and consummate musicianship

are to the fore. I cannot commend this CD too highly."
