David Owen Norris

David Owen Norris's appointment as the first Gilmore Artist, after a long search amongst the world's finest pianists by an American Foundation, has led to a busy international solo career - in the last few seasons he has toured the United States, Canada and Australia, and played in Vienna and Munich, Norway, Denmark, Holland and Mexico. The Seattle Times wrote in April 1998: 'He can play like a demon possessed, or like a cocktail-lounge pianist on hallucinogens, or like the dreamiest caresser of ivories imaginable. An utterly quirky, highly personalized, strangely brilliant evening of music-making.' But he has ranged more widely through the world of music. He was the Gresham Professor of Music, the Artistic Director of the Cardiff Festival, the Chairman of the Steans Institute for Singers in Chicago, a repetiteur at the Royal Opera House, and harpist at the RSC. He was for many years a professor at the RAM, and is now Professor of Vocal Accompaniment at the Royal College of Music. His is a familiar voice on the radio: two of his very recent programmes are nominated for Sony Awards. His work often springs from new scholarship - in recent seasons he has given world premières of a song-cycle by Schubert and a Piano Concerto by Robert Walker based on Elgar's sketches. His forthcoming concerto performances on early English pianos will throw a surprising new light on Classical harmonic procedure.
