Thoughts, reflections and insights from my first Leeds Piano Competition.
It’s my first day in Leeds and my first experience of the Leeds Piano Competition. Some brief thoughts follow, plus the names of the finalists who will play on Friday and Saturday night this week in Leeds Town Hall.
Owen has composed the music that accompanies an immersive theatrical experience in Swansea ‘Now the Hero’. The production opens the Swansea International Festival on 25th September.
Composer Owen Roberts discusses who and what inspired him to compose, his training at Durham University, and his work with the late award-winning composer Johann Johannsson.
A week of Leeds Piano Competition loveliness gets underway for me tomorrow. Before I board the train, me and Fran Wilson from the Cross-Eyed Pianist blog exchanged emails over what we’re most looking forward to about the competition and why.
