Iain Burnside (piano)

Iain Burnside enjoys a unique reputation as pianist and broadcaster, forged through his commitment to the song repertoire and his collaborations with leading international singers. Such artists have included Dame Margaret Price, Susan Chilcott, Galina Gorchakova, Adrianne Pieczonka, Yvonne Kenny and Susan Bickley; David Daniels, John Mark Ainsley, Mark Padmore and Bryn Terfel. Iain also works some outstanding younger singers: Lisa Milne, Sally Matthews, Sarah Connolly; William Dazeley, Roderick Williams and Jonathan Lemalu. Chamber music collaborations have featured the Britten-Pears Ensemble and the Brodsky, Delmé and Vanbrugh Quartets.

Iain’s broadcasting career covers both Radio and TV and he has been honoured with a Sony Radio Award. His innovative programming led to a co-production between Black Box and Voices: three highly acclaimed recordings comprising songs by Schoenberg with Sarah Connolly and Roderick Williams; Debussy with Lisa Milne and Susan Bickley; and Copland with Susan Chilcott.

In addition Iain has combined his roles as pianist and presenter in a number of series: From Where I’m Sitting on Radio 3, and The Music Party for BBC World Service. His television involvement includes Cardiff Singer of the World, Leeds International Piano Competition and BBC Young Musician of the Year.

Iain has devised concert series for a number of organisations: the acclaimed Century Songs for the Bath Festival and The Crucible, Sheffield; the International Song Recital Series at London’s South Bank Centre; the Finzi Friends’ triennial festival of English Song in Ludlow.

His communicative skills and expert knowledge ensure that Iain is much sought after for educational work, taking master classes at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London; the Julliard School, New York; and the Banff Centre, Canada.
