5.15pm – ‘My Life in Music’ with Philip Fowke

‘…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. 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.

7pm – Faculty Gala recital

An exciting and varied programme including performances from Ben Powell, Gemma Webster, Lulu Yang, Nikki Iles, with more performers to be announced.
