Benjamin Baker won 1st Prize at the 2016 Young Concert Artists auditions in New York and 3rd Prize at the Michael Hill Competition in New Zealand in 2017.
Recent highlights include a critically acclaimed debut at Merkin Concert Hall in New York, recitals at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. and Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in Germany.
Equally at home as a chamber musician, Benjamin plays on a Tononi violin (1709) on generous loan.
Pianist Daniel Lebhardt won 1st Prize at the Young Concert Artists auditions in Paris and New York in 2014. A year later he was invited to record music by Bartók for Decca and in 2016 won the Most Promising Pianist prize at the Sydney International Competition.
