Many thanks to Trottar for this audiophile genius
Twenty eight years since his death, the story of John Ogdon’s life in music has just been told in his first full-length biography entitled Piano Man. Charles Beauclerk, a friend of the Ogdon family, gives what I think is a fascinating, unflinching, and honest account of Ogdon’s astonishing virtuosity, his victory at the Tchaikovsky Competition in 1962, and his friendship with the other firebrands of New Music Manchester – Elgar Howarth, Alexander Goehr, Harrison Birtwistle, and Peter Maxwell Davies….
