Benjamin has a natural and sensitive musicality, and an intrinsic ease at
the piano ...
Philip Fowke, 06 June 2008
I rate Ben Shepherd very highly indeed. He is a serious musician, totally open
and committed to whatever he does.
Paul Chapman, 29 November 2007
To round off the evening, Benjamin Shepherd sought to persuade us that Chopin
was 'the poet of the piano'. After a performance of the Scherzo No. 1, which was
brilliantly profound, the audience needed no convincing.
Roger Jones, Cheltenham Echo, April 2005
Expressive and beautifully phrased ... Bravo

He has very fine hands ... he is a very talented musician with a big potential
Alexander Ardakov, 24 November 2004
The loudest applause came when Benjamin Shepherd took to the stage. He held the
audience spellbound with his interpretation of Chopin works on the piano ... it was
clear everyone was amazed at his talent.
Alfred Lawrence, Gloucestershire Echo, April 2004
The performance was lyrical, dramatic and well constructed
