A brilliant young pianist, Richard Uttley came to play for us in 2013 as accompanist to the clarinettist/composer Mark Simpson with whom he has since recorded for TV and radio. He has also performed and toured in China and Columbia with the trombonist Peter Moore who played here a year ago.
His playing is frequently broadcast on BBC Radio 3. Richard won the British Contemporary Piano Competition in 2006 and has since performed extensively, as recitalist and concerto soloist, at venues including Bridgewater Hall, Cadogan Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall and Wigmore Hall.
Richard read music at Clare College, Cambridge (graduating with a double first in 2008) and studied with Martin Roscoe at Guildhall School of Music.
