Matthew King – piano
Matthew King is a composer, pianist and professor of composition at Guildhall School of Music. His recent elaboration of Wagner’s unfinished sketches, Richard Wagner in Venice: a Symphony has been described by the reviewer, Ivan Hewett, as “truly uncanny in the way it transports us into an authentically Wagnerian world.” Matthew is currently writing a set of piano sonatas of his own. He brings a living composer’s perspective on the rich expressive and timbral possibilities of older pianos. He will be playing pieces by Schubert and Chopin, and possibly a new piece of his own, newly composed for one of the instruments in the Cobbe Collection.
