Duncan Honeybourne has established a colourful and diverse career as a pianist, writer and in music education. His solo debut in 1998 at Symphony Hall, Birmingham and the National Concert Hall, Dublin, was broadcast on radio and television, and recital debuts included London, Paris and the Miry Concertzaal in Ghent, Belgium, during the international piano festival Gentse Vleugels. Duncan’s first solo recital disc was described by Gramophone magazine as “not to be missed by all lovers of English music”, whilst BBC Music Magazine reported: “Hard to imagine better performances.”

Commended by International Piano magazine for the “suave confidence” of his playing, Duncan has made extensive concert appearances as recitalist, concerto soloist and chamber musician in the UK, Ireland, France, Belgium and Switzerland. He has given recitals at major venues and leading festivals and has partnered many renowned artists in chamber music. His solo performances have been frequently broadcast on BBC Radio 3, Irish, Swiss and Finnish Radio, Radio France Musique, SABC (South Africa), ABC Classic FM (Australia) and Radio New Zealand Concert.

Duncan’s many recordings on several labels include the complete piano music of E.J. Moeran and Andrew Downes, music by Stanford, Elgar, Vaughan Williams and Holst, plus premiere recordings of piano works by Walford Davies, Ivor Gurney and many neglected and contemporary composers. His solo discs have been selected as MusicWeb International Recording of the Year and CD of the Week on FMR Radio in South Africa.

Duncan Honeybourne has premiered major new works dedicated to him by several celebrated composers, including John Joubert’s Third Piano Sonata, Sadie Harrison’s piano sequences Lunae and Shadows (which he has recorded on the Prima Facie label), Peter Reynolds’ Penllyn for Late Music York and the Andrew Downes Piano Concerto in Birmingham Town Hall. Of his performance of Joubert’s Third Sonata, Musical Opinion wrote: “The sonata’s disparate elements coalesced logically into a powerful entity as the work’s dedicatee unfolded each phrase and paragraph at white heat. This cogently argued and emotionally charged performance was the highlight of the concert.”

Duncan is a Tutor in Piano at the University of Southampton.

“Duncan Honeybourne’s recital was judiciously planned and superbly played.”

– Musical Opinion

 “Honeybourne’s performance is simply beautiful, even in its most powerful and haunting moments.”

– Fanfare Magazine (USA)

 Past musical events

 Fri 17 November & Sat 18 November: John Law & Nick Sorensen (piano & sax, jazz & classical)

 

John Law, solo piano, with special guest Nick Sorensen, on saxophone for Some Of Our Favourite Things…. Two evenings of intimate jazz and classical music, infusing life into beautiful melodies and compositions from these two genres, with the quick-fire, spontaneous creativity of improvisation.

John Law (piano) will be presenting original work of his own, both written and improvised, treading a path between jazz and classical music; music that is both delicate and atmospheric, as well as rhythmic and powerful. John will be joined by saxophonist Nick Sorensen in a spontaneous presentation of tunes from the jazz repertoire, creating new arrangements of well-known tunes on the spur of the moment!

John Law, a prize-winning classical prodigy on piano, turned away from classical piano studies to pursue jazz and improvised music when he was 23 and has been involved in, and acclaimed for, his work in a wide variety of contemporary jazz projects: from solo piano concerts and albums through trio and quartet tours and recordings, right through to large scale works for his semi-classical ensemble Cornucopia.

Nick Sorensen is highly regarded in the South West for his fluid, inventive style of saxophone playing. Equally at home in jazz language or freely improvising, Nick is also active in education and is currently Dean of the School of Education at Bath Spa University.

When they split in 1983 after three years together, the renowned music critic Richard Williams commented in The Times that “their too-brief career will not have been in vain if it has served at least to launch the pianist Mark Springer”.  Subsequently releasing several solo albums for Virgin prior to setting up The Exit Label he has spent his career developing a distinctive sound world that combines his skill and virtuosity at the piano with an ability to write music for piano and orchestra, string quartets, opera and many other combinations of instruments. He partnered on his last CD “Aparat” with the Penguin Cafe Orchestra’s Arthur Jeffes. In the two concerts Mark Springer will “capture the spontaneous feeling of improvised music but turned into compositional ideas that develop free flowing improvisations”.
