Piano Performance

Background
I am an experienced performer, as soloist in recitals and concertos, and in various ensembles. I play everything from baroque to contemporary styles, with special interest in devising programmes for specific occasions. For example, in the Chopin/Schumann anniversary year, 2010, I  performed programmes with a mix of music by Chopin (Etudes, Ballades, Waltzes, Nocturnes and more) and Schumann (Phantasie and Scenes of Childhood). In the Bach anniversary year, 2000, I performed the complete Well Tempered Klavier, books 1 and 2.

I am always ready to discuss traditional, innovative or customised programmes, including non-conventional performance settings. All audience types and age groups can be considered. Solo programmes are rooted in the mainstream piano repertoire, as seen in my repertoire – from Bach to Bartok and beyond, but can also include ragtime and light jazz. I often play concerts with a mix of solo and chamber music, teaming up with other musicians to create variety and appeal. Please see my Programme Biography for a summary of my career.
