About Stephen

Stephen Gott is a Classically trained pianist who recently performed in New York City, available for weddings and private events.
Public liability insurance of £10 million

British American Concert Pianist Stephen Gott (B.1991) is known for his interpretations of Baroque, Classical, and Romantic piano repertoire. He is in demand for concerts since being described as a “Piano Prodigy”, BBC news. Stephen began his piano studies at the comparatively late age of 14. He attended Trinity Laban Conservatoire in London after only 3 years of learning. In November 2019 Stephen was a finalist in the Liszt Society International Piano Competition and now works for the council. He performed Liszt’s Annees de Pelerinage BK 3 and the seldom-played Mephisto Waltz 4 s696. In March 2022 Stephen came third in the Ortobello (Italy) online piano competition and in October 2022 Stephen performed in New York City as part of the National Tang Dynasty International piano competition. He is also working with the film composer James Sizemore on his solo piano repertoire. In November 2022 Stephen obtained his master’s degree from the University of Huddersfield under the tuition of Jonathan Fisher. Stephen has performed in Masterclasses with Sir Stephen Hough and Dr. Leslie Howard. Stephen studies privately with Pascal Nemirovski's plans to release his first recording in 2023 with James Sizemore in New York City and perform in London, Leeds, Oxford, Cambridge, Chicago, Paris, and Budapest.

We booked Stephen Gott Pianist for our wedding based on previous reviews and we were not disappointed at all. He arrived early with all of his equipment dressed professionally and he was very polite and friendly. We decided to book Stephen for the arrival of the guests at the reception and everyone really enjoyed the music. He is very versatile and played a range of music styles which we had asked for beforehand and also played some requests from the guests. I can't recommend him enough for any event he goes above and beyond.
