The first instrument that came to mind was the Yamaha CP300 which has dropped to around 1300GBP and slightly lower. Great GHE hammer action keyboard and stunning piano samples. There is a 16-layer sequencer onboard too.
Although I haven't tried them, some of the new Roland stage pianos seem quite good. Downside is that most of them don't have built in speakers - you would need an amp. If your interested, the RD700SX seems interesting. If you can get access to it, the MP8II or the MP5 from Kawai may be worth checking out too. They have a good hammer action too but not too sure about the piano sound of the later models. Piano samples on older models tended to be very boast and sudden. However, those models are hard to come by, certainly in my part of the world.
I was thinking about the P140 but I don't think it'd be refined or mature enough for you. Normally, I'd be recommending something like a CLP240/270 or higher for people with similar 'musicality' but then they wouldn't portable....
I can most certainly recommend the CP300 as I own one and despite being fussy about sound quality and touch response, this has pleased me no end!
