Described by Gramophone magazine as “one of the finest British pianists of his generation”, Charles Owen has enjoyed an extensive international career performing a wide ranging repertoire to outstanding critical acclaim.

He has appeared at London's Barbican and Queen Elizabeth Hall and regularly gives recitals at the Wigmore Hall and Kings Place. Internationally, he has performed at the Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall in New York, Vienna's Musikverein, the Paris Musée d'Orsay, and the Moscow Conservatoire.

Charles has an extensive discography both as a solo artist and in collaboration with others. The world premiere of Jonathan Dove's Piano Quintet with the Sacconi Quartet was selected as Recording of the Month by Gramophone Magazine in August 2017. 

Appointed Steinway & Sons UK Ambassador in 2016, we are delighted to welcome Charles for the inaugural recital performed on St Laurence's own Festival Steinway piano.
