Paul is one of the UK’s most versatile pianists, appearing in a multitude of performing roles, from solo recitals and concertos, through chamber music and accompaniment, to contemporary ensemble and orchestral work. Since the 1990s Paul has been a member of the piano teaching staff at the Royal Northern College of Music, and is also active as an examiner, trainer, moderator and presenter for Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music.
Paul is well known to Yewfield audiences as he has played at Yewfield regularly since the Yewfield Concerts started in 1993, both on his own and in several chamber music groups.
This concert is open to all with a collection on the door.
There is also a pre-concert supper available at 6.00 p.m. costing £25.00 which includes a donation towards the recital. To book supper, please contact Yewfield preferably no later than the day before the concert.
Yewfield Concerts are held in a country manor house. This provides an exceptional venue, with clear and vivid acoustics in a beautiful room. Yewfield is about a mile along a lane leading northwards at the top of the hill on the B5285 between Coniston and Hawkshead. Directions are on the website (see below). There is parking at the house.
