Last Show: Thursday 21 st June 2018

The Pheasantry (Chelsea)

Having headlined festivals everywhere from Adelaide and Hong Kong to Barbados and Henley the “greatest damn pianist in the civilised world” (Jonathan Ross ) has tired of flying and brought his virtuoso show back home to London’s gorgeously decadent Pheasantry in Chelsea. Covering every style of music imaginable from impossibly fast cartoon medleys to Mozart in the style of Debussy to Chopsticks as played by Stevie Wonder. With a CV stacked with solo BBC Radio appearances, and performances with David Bowie, Cleo Laine, Elvis Costello and Charlotte Church,  his ‘staggering virtuosity' is a given, 'unbelievable versatility' is assured and your requests for any tune in any style taken on board and produced as if they've been arranged and rehearsed months in advance.
