Adam Swayne Lecture Recital
August 20 @ 17:15 - 18:00
The Times described Adam Swayne as “a pianist of formidable technique and high intelligence” and the Evening Standard as “an ideal blend of panache and subtlety”.
Adam combines performing and composing with his role as Deputy Head of Keyboard Studies at the RNCM. He has performed in festivals throughout the UK and abroad, including on BBC Radio and Television and at the BBC Proms. Adam is the pianist for leading contemporary group the Riot Ensemble.
We welcome Adam to the course for the first time, to both perform and teach.
