Stunningly talented classical pianist, Stephen Marquiss is set to release his EP, ‘Joshua’s Fire’, on October 10. Stephen has made a video for each of the seven tracks on the EP, and has spent the past decade honing his skills and transforming his music into beautiful masterpieces.

Stephen Marquiss used the Bosendorfer Imperial SE reproducing piano to create the EP, and says, “I play classical piano – unfeigned, heartfelt…alongside my own music – melodic and accessible, ambient and rich-textured.”

Stephen Marquiss was classically trained at Wells Cathedral School, before moving onto Cambridge University. He then took further studies in New York, where he developed his unorthodox approach to classical music. It’s this approach which has helped him spearhead the Frome Festival, held every year since 2000. Stephen describes himself as a “Technique Detective”: he helps “pianists to play fluently and confidently, hone technique, and cultivate mindful coordination and well-being”, whilst he helps “piano teachers to motivate students with effective solutions – or to refresh their own experience of playing.”

‘Joshua’s Fire’ is available to order on CD from Stephen Marquiss’s website, where you can also buy the sheet music, as well has his other music.

You can find Stephen Marquiss online on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Google Plus, YouTube, and of course, his website.
