Over the last year Ben has made his debut with the Mozarteum Orchestra in the Mozartwoche Festival (Salzburg) and with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. This season Ben records as a soloist with the Philharmonia Orchestra, and with pianist/composer Huw Watkin. He returns to Wigmore Hall, performs Britten’s Serenade at the Queen Elizabeth Hall and Ligeti’s Horn Trio at the Pierre Boulez Saal. 

At the age of 18 Ben was a Concerto Finalist in the 2016 BBC Young Musician Competition.  Highlights since then include his debut at the BBC Proms, solo appearances with the Aurora, Britten Sinfonia, English Chamber, London Mozart Players, Lucerne Symphony, Manchester Camerata, Prague Philharmonia and Sinfonie Orchester Berlin. A committed chamber musician, Ben has collaborated with Daniel Barenboim, Martha Argerich, Sergei Babyan, Elena Bashkirova, Sunwook Kim and Michael Volle at the Verbier, Salzburg, Jerusalem, Intonations (Berlin) and Barenboim (Buenos Aires) Festivals, among many others.

In 2018 Ben’s debut album was released and he was selected as a BBC Music Magazine Rising Star and Gramophone Magazine “One to Watch”. He was a prize winner at the 2019 YCAT International Auditions. Ben Goldscheider is YCAT’s inaugural Ann Driver Trust Artist.
