‘My Life in Music’ with Philip Fowke

August 17 @ 17:15 - 18:00

” …… that co-existence of a high musical intellect with elegance, wit and unashamedly
joyful showmanship, marks out Philip Fowke among his own generation of pianists …… ”  The Times

 

Philip Fowke is respected and admired worldwide as one of Britain’s most distinguished pianists. His frequent appearances and broadcasts with leading orchestras in the UK and his many recordings also see him performing abroad where he in recent seasons he has toured in the USA, Canada, Scandinavia, South America, Germany, Italy and New Zealand. Philip  has made recordings for EMI, Lyrita, Unicorn, CRD, Chandos and Naxos. These include the concertos of Addinsell, Bliss, Delius, Hoddinott, Rachmaninov, Ravel and Tchaikovsky. He has also made solo records including works by Bliss, Chopin and an album of piano transcriptions.

In 2020 we celebrated Philip’s 70th year with a very special summer school online performance. Philip  recorded a new work especially for the summer school. Stephen Hough gave a new work as a birthday present for Philip and  the world premiere was given on the summer school in August 2020.

This year from the Stoller Hall, we welcome Philip to share with us his life in music.
