Michael Leslie, Concert Pianist
When Michael Leslie sits down at the piano one is compelled by the magnetism of the playing. Leslie does not play to the gallery or to please the crowd. From under his fingers the music emerges warm, vivid, strong and alive. There's not a whiff of the museum, or the dignified blandness of the professional. On the contrary, the music is almost virulently alive and kicking. One senses that the work probably sounded rather different last time round, and will be different again next time.
