Richard Benjafield (percussion)

Richard Benjafield studied music at the Royal Northern College of Music, University of Ghana and Tanglewood Music Centre. Now an international performer as a soloist and in contemporary ensembles, such as the London Sinfonietta, Nash Ensemble, and his own group the ‘three strange angels’, he is also on the senior music staff of Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Notable events in 2008 included releasing an album 'Lullabies and Nightmares', a festival 'The Stamping Ground' at Guildhall, a book on percussion ensemble repertoire, and performances at the BBC Proms, Cheltenham Music Festival, King’s Place and Royal College of Art. He has been described as 'strangely charismatic' (classicalsource.net), 'a radical in the field of percussion' (BBC Music Magazine), and 'the hardest-working percussionist in London?' (johnsonsrambler.wordpress.com), none of which he is inclined to disagree with.
