Brenda Lucas Ogdon graduated with Honors from the Royal Northern College of Music in 1957. John Ogdon was a Student at the College at the same time and John and Brenda were married in 1960. Brenda embarked on a Solo career making her first appearance with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra at the age of 21 and giving solo recitals for the BBC from the Manchester Studio. John and Brenda performed as a Duo partnership and were invited to play at several major festivals. In 1993 Brenda founded the John Ogdon Foundation- a Charity dedicated to the preservation of John’s memory. On this release, Brenda performs Bach’s Preludes and Fugues from The Well-Tempered Clavichord. “Always technically adept and fluent.” (Evening Standard) Read more “Throughout she played with elegance, a sure technical command and the full involvement and fluidity of movement of arms and upper body- she brings a unique personality- she elicited tones of exquisite beauty from the Steinway Model D Piano.” (Ellesworth American) Read less
