Piano & Organ

Music

I am interested in performing solo and accompanying instrumentalists and singers. I have a broad repertoire of styles, mainly classical, and enjoy the challenge of learning new works.

For the past 6 years I have been busily involved as a church musician in and around Brixham, South Devon. For churches requiring an organist or pianist in Torbay I may be available but I am not seeking a position. Indeed, this Reformation 500 year I have decided to distance repetitious ritual.

The organ is a curious beast to master with something of an anorak following but can be very rewarding. For texture and colour it is brilliant but for expression and sensitivity the piano is far better. At home I am fortunate to have an amazing nearly-new Grotrian-Steinweg piano.

See my music résumé. Here are some piano samples…

Johann Sebastian Bach: Prelude and Fugue, WTC Bk. 1 No. 18 in G# minor (4 voices)

Frédéric Chopin: Nocturne, Op. 37 No. 2 in G major

Sergei Prokofiev: Sarcasms, Op. 17 No. 3 Allego precipitato

Lennox Berkeley: Six Preludes, Op. 23 No. 2 Andante
