Their recording for Nonesuch was one of Andrew Clement’s “Top 10 classical releases of 2018” in the Guardian.
As a chamber musician and ensemble player he has performed throughout Europe, America and the Far East. He is the pianist of the Hebrides Ensemble, a member of the Colin Currie Group and has given performances and broadcasts with groups such as the Nash Ensemble, London Sinfonietta, ECO Ensemble, Ensemble 360 and Conchord. In 2018 he toured Tokyo and Osaka with LSO Percussion Ensemble, giving the London and Japanese premieres of John Adams’s Roll Over Beethoven for two pianos.
In recent years he has become a frequent guest of London Symphony Orchestra and BBC Symphony Orchestra. In 2017 he joined the LSO under Sir Simon Rattle for performances of Petrushka in London and Paris.
