ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This recording contains many of the pieces encountered in leaning the piano. Here they are performed as not just graded pieces for the sake of passing an exam, but demonstrate to the student their artistic worth. One interpretation is not what a student should aim for, but here, unusually, is the chance to hear these short pieces of music as if in a concert scenario. Musicianship, not just technique, is to the fore.

Christopher was educated at Kings' College Choir School (Cambridge) and Bryanston School (Dorset). He began playing the piano at the age of four, and later took up the violin at seven.

He has performed as a soloist regularly in all the major venues in and around Bristol, UK, and other solo work has included concerts in Spain, France and Germany, together with the Wigmore Hall, London.

Much in demand both as a accompanist and for chamber music, Christopher is hugely experienced through years of music making with all standards of soloist. At the top he has accompanied players such as Jack Brymer, Christopher Bunting, Jürgen Hess, Crispin Steele-Perkins and Colin Sauer, but he also enjoys working with young performers at the start of their careers.

Orchestral conducting and musical directing play a large part in the yearly timetable. Regular appearances with the Brandon Hill Chamber Orchestra at St George's, Bristol, as well as numerous large-scale operatic and musical works, have been undertaken over a long period. Various choirs have sought his knowledge and experience.

In the film Gosford Park, Christopher was involved as pianist and musical consultant.
