Sam Haywood (piano)

Sam Haywood was born in Brisbane, Australia, to British parents. They returned to England before Sam’s second birthday and lived in the Lake District. A piano arrived into the house when Sam was four and since then they have been inseparable. During his early years he was mentored by David Hartigan and at the age of thirteen he was a finalist in the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition. Having been awarded the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Julius Isserlis award, he moved to Vienna to study with Paul Badura-Skoda. Maria Curcio, a pupil of Artur Schnabel, later became his close friend, teacher and a major influence.

He has since performed in major venues all over the world and has made a number of recordings, including one using Chopin’s own Pleyel piano. As a chamber musician his partners have included Joshua Bell and Steven Isserlis, with whom he features on the Musical Gifts album, released on Sony Masterworks. He is also a composer and Artistic Director of the Solent Music Festival.

Aside from music, his passions include literature, technology and magic.
