The London based Australian pianist Antony Gray has long been regarded as one of the most interesting and communicative performers of his generation. His career to date has encompassed solo and chamber music performances around the world, as well as regular recordings for CD and radio. He has been a (selective) champion of contemporary and, and has premiered many pieces written for him. He has also championed many neglected composers such as Enescu, Dussek, Martinu and Malcolm Williamson.

Recordings already released are the complete solo piano works of Eugene Goossens, Malcolm Williamson and John Carmichael, as well as the late piano pieces of Brahms, on ABC Classics (available from ). He also features in a performance of the John Carmichael piano quartet on the highly successful disc 'Sea Changes'. To be released in the near future will be a 3 disc set of Bach transcriptions, including several written specially for the recording, and a 5 disc set of the complete piano works of Poulenc, including a number of works recorded for the first time, all on ABC Classics. A recital disc for the Spanish label KNS Classical ( ) was released early in 2005. He has also been involved in a disc of music by French composer Francois Sarhan (‘Hell, a small detail’) on the Zig Zag label ( ) as well as the Chandos Grainger series. He has recently embarked on a major project to record all of Saint-Saens’ piano music, including a large body of unpublished and previously unrecorded works.




"From the established repertoire to unknown new and old keyboard music, Antony Gray belongs to that small group of internationally distinguished pianists who blend depth of understanding with technical mastery."
    Malcolm Williamson, AO, CBE 

"Powerfully idiomatic...hugely impressive... diligent & captivating pianism"

"This was Brahms playing of real insight and maturity ..... compelling!"
   New Straits Times

               "The unique features of Antony Gray's playing are that his superlative technique and command of the keyboard are always at the service of the composer, bringing the listener into the composers sound world with a sureness of touch that both beguiles and enlightens."  
John Carmichael
