In his student days at the Royal Northern College of Music, Jonathan Middleton was given many opportunities for public performance, including several major recitals and concerto appearances at which he played the Mozart Concerto in F (K4S9), and the Beethoven Piano Concertos Nos 2 and 5. As a prize winner in the prestigious BBC Television "Young Musician of the Year" he was particularly commended for his playing of Liszt - one distinguished adjudicator writing of his performance of "Funérailles" stated "... it was simply the best I have ever heard".

Mr Middleton's repertoire is comprehensive, ranging from Scarlatti and Bach to the present day, but it is with the music of Liszt that he has been most closely associated. Whilst still a student, he gave a performance of the Liszt Piano Concerto in E flat and received reviews referring to his " barnstorming virtuosity" and "beautiful, Chopinesque poetry" (Guardian), His farewell to the RNCM was in a "Principal's Concert", which included a performance of Liszt's "Valléze d'Obermann" of which the Daily Telegraph praised "...Middleton's assured, gripping and triumphant reading." He has given recitals widely throughout England and has also had experience as an accompanist and Chamber musician, including a performance of the Schumann Piano Quintet with the Mistry Quartet at Logan Hall in London, where be has been a regular recitalist. Mr Middleton also completed a national tour of Britain with the Roussland Male Voice Choir of St Petersburg, Russia, which was widely acclaimed. He is presently on the staff at the Royal Northern College of Music where he regularly gives "Master Classes".
