We are pleased to open the season with a recital by one of the UK’s best loved pianists, whose extraordinary career spans over four decades. His enduring popularity and the respect in which he is universally held are built on a deeply thoughtful musicianship allied to an easy rapport with audiences and fellow musicians alike. His CV includes a repertoire of over 100 concertos performed or recorded, long-standing chamber music partnerships, frequent broadcasts and solo recitals and recordings.
Teaching has always been an important part of Martin’s life and the development of young talent helps him to constantly re-examine and re-evaluate his own playing. He is currently a Professor of Piano at the Guildhall School of Music in London and has just been awarded his Fellowship there.
Martin lives in the Lake District which provides inspiration and relaxation and also enables him to indulge his passions for the countryside and hill-walking.
