Sam Haywood has performed in many of the world’s major concert halls, including Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, Philharmonie de Paris, Vienna Konzerthaus and the Wigmore Hall. The New York Times hailed his ‘‘Passionate flair and sparkling clarity’ and the Washington Post his ‘dazzling, evocative playing’. He has a special fondness for Indonesia, where he has performed and taught for many years.

He embraces a wide spectrum of the piano repertoire and is equally at home as a soloist, chamber musician or working with singers. He has toured extensively as a duo with American violinist Joshua Bell and also with cellist Steven Isserlis.

He has composed several instrumental miniatures, including ‘The Other Side’, first performed at the Konzerthaus in Vienna. His Song of the Penguins for bassoon and piano, dedicated to Roger Birnstingl, is published by Emerson Editions.

For Hyperion Records, Haywood has recorded two albums of music by Charles Villiers Stanford and Julius Isserlis. Passionate about early instruments, he also recorded a Chopin album on the composer’s own Pleyel piano, part of the Cobbe Collection, to celebrate his bicentenary in 2010. For Sony Classical he has recorded a selection of works by the child prodigy Alma Deutscher and for Toccata Classics the violin and piano sonatas of Agnes Zimmermann with Mathilde Milwidsky. His recording of Mozart, Poulenc and Thuille with the Galliard Ensemble is soon to be released by Deux-Elles Records.

Haywood is also Artistic Director and co-founder of the Solent Music Festival, which takes place annually in the beautiful sailing town of Lymington, UK.

The programme for this concert will include works by Schubert, Beethoven, Rachmaninoff, Elgar, Poulenc, and Chopin.
