12/12/2021 Charleston Farmhouse, East Sussex

There was such an excitement and stir when Vanessa Redgrave agreed to be the reader for this evening’s concert with piano music inspired and influenced by Spain, and readings to include the wonderful writings of Federico Garçia Lorca.


The programme of this Words and Music evening will be an all Spanish affair, with music by Albéniz, Granados, Ravel and Debussy interlaced with readings including writings by Virginia Woolf, Lorca and Gerald Brennan. Vanessa Redgrave.
And myself.
This will be a highlight in my season's concerts. Its not often, if at all, one has the chance to share the stage with such a revered and iconic figure as Vanessa Redgrave, and I, like the rest of the audience, are looking forward to this event with eager anticipation.

25/06/2021 Charleston Farmhouse, Sussex

A small series of readings and music created by Paul Boucher and myself entitled Music and Word at Charleston Farmhouse in Sussex. With present restrictions hopefully beginning to lift, we are hoping to present another evening of this series. The theme for this event is based around John Cage, both his music and his writings, and the music which influenced his unique volume of piano works. Other musical excerpts will include Satie and Scarlatti, and writings by EM Forster, Tagore, Satie to name but a few! Do check with the Charleston website for times and any changes to this event.

Home – Charleston Website

A selection of pieces from John Cage's Sonatas and Interludes written for a 'prepared' piano, with other works by Scarlatti and Satie both of whom had a considerable influence on Cage's work. This will be intertwined with extracts of writings by Cage himself, Satie, EM Forster and Tagore, amongst others. Myself. Both pianos will be on stage. The 'prepared' piano as specified by Cage of his piano pieces, and a more normal instrument familiar to all!
We are so happy to welcome again Joely Richardson as our reader for this evening's event.
A wonderful chance to hear and be immersed in the unique sound world of John Cage's music interlaced with more known works by Satie and Scarlatti on a regular piano. Its not often one can have both on stage. Coupled with reading excerpts from some of the authors mentioned perviously, this will make for a truly fascinating evening. Audiences will be welcome to come 'inspect' the prepared piano after the performance to see and discover how John Cage managed to change a piano into something totally exotic and fun at the same time!!

In between the Piano concertos will be a piece written by the composer Lucy Hale.
Myself performing the 2 Mozart concertos with members of the Bath Philharmonia. One normally gets asked to do one Mozart Piano Concerto for a concert, but to get such a wonderful chance to do two....I can't wait!!
And it's two of my absolutely favourite Mozart Piano Concertos!! Bring it on!!
17/05/2021 Wigmore Hall London

A welcome, a very welcome start albeit tentative to this year. A recital in one of the most loved and special venues in the world. How lucky we are!

The last three Beethoven Piano Sonatas.
Op 109 in E, Op 110 in A flat, and Op 111 in C minor.
Myself. My very first concert in a very long time...like most of my dear friends and colleagues these last 13 months have been a very strange and difficult time, a time of uncertainty, loneliness and despair. As we ease gradually out of this lockdown, and ease ourselves into the very lives we have been so accustomed to, let us not forget all the loved and dear ones we have lost in this awful pandemic.
