Nick van Bloss

"Sublime poetry, playfulness and, above all, a relish of what the modern piano can bring to this music in terms of dynamics, colour and articulation" - The Sunday Times


"Immaculately-articulated authority - thunderous grandeur"

Michael Church, The Independent (Wigmore Hall, all-Beethoven recital)

After a 15 year absence from the concert platform, a London ‘comeback’ saw Nick van Bloss attract worldwide media attention with a concert described as ‘Triumphant’. Since then, his concerts and recordings have attracted glowing reviews - Classical Piano Magazine writing that his CD of Bach’s Goldberg Variations had ‘left critics clawing at superlatives’ and the Miami Herald stating that ‘Van Bloss’ refined artistry and artistic discernment mark him as a pianist of rare gifts’ after his Festival debut.

Nick van Bloss was born in London and began piano lessons at the age of 11. His musical training began as a chorister at Westminster Abbey and he entered the Royal College of Music at the age of 15 where he studied with Yonty Solomon. After winning multiple competitions whilst still a student at the Royal College, he went on to study with Benjamin Kaplan in London.

Despite choosing to only perform occasionally, Nick van Bloss has performed recitals and concertos in the United States, Japan, Sweden, the Baltics, the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Canada, Germany and Austria, and with the English Chamber Orchestra conducting concertos from the keyboard. He was hailed as a ‘Genius without Vanity’, by the press after his Austrian debut. His 2018, all-Beethoven recital at London’s Wigmore Hall received outstanding reviews and he was immediately invited back to perform Bach’s Goldberg Variations for the following season.

Nick van Bloss' recording of Chopin’s 3rd Sonata and the 24 Preludes was released in 2013, and his 2015 recording of Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations has been hailed as ‘the standard by which other recordings can be judged’, and the CD was further awarded the ‘Supersonic Award’ from Europe’s Pizzicato Magazine.
