Philip Hayes

born: 1738
died: 19 March 1797
country: United Kingdom

Philip Hayes was a talented provincial composer. He was born in Oxford where his father was professor of music, a post he inherited in 1777. His six keyboard concertos were published in 1769 when he was living mainly in London and working as a Gentleman of the Chapel Royal. They are the first set by an Englishman to specify the piano, though in general their solo parts work equally well on the other specified alternatives, the harpsichord and the organ.
