Philip Fowke (piano)

Philip Fowke is one of Britain’s most outstanding pianists and distinguished musicians. His appearances with leading orchestras together with his many broadcasts and recordings have earned him international respect, admiration and the affection of audiences. Amongst the more famous conductors he has appeared with are Vladimir Ashkenazy, Sir Simon Rattle, Gennadi Rozhdestvensky, Yuri Temirkanov and Klaus Tennstedt. He has toured the USA, Canada, Scandinavia, South America, Germany, Italy and New Zealand and in recent seasons he has worked with the London Philharmonic, the Royal Philharmonic and City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestras.

Philip Fowke is recognised as a champion of British music, performing the concertos of Arnell, Britten, Bliss, Delius, Finzi, Ireland, King, Leighton, Rawsthorne, Tippett and Walton beside those by Grieg, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov and Schumann. He continues to challenge audiences, performing orchestral works by Casella, Dohnanyi, Gershwin, Khatchaturian, Lambert, Poulenc, Richard Strauss, Stravinsky and Weber. He also brings his keen musicianship to bear in bringing the best out of popular film music, including Addinsell’s Warsaw Concerto, and more recent classics from this genre. He exhibits a similarly well-informed range of knowledge and ability in his recital and chamber music as well as in his many broadcasts as both performer and contributor to discussion programmes for BBC Radio 3 and live radio commentary during a recent Leeds International Piano Competition.

Philip Fowke’s impressive discography includes concertos by Rachmaninov, Ravel, Tchaikovsky and Finzi, the Chopin Waltzes and Sonatas, Delius’ Piano Concerto and Alun Hoddinott’s Piano Concerto 1 for numerous labels including EMI, Chandos, Lyrita and Naxos. He is a member of the London Piano Quartet, whose first CD of music by Cyril Scott was issued in 2002 and a more recent recording of chamber music by Alan Bush received an excellent review in Gramophone. He is an acclaimed teacher: he holds the post of Senior Fellow of Keyboard at Trinity College of Music in London, gives regular master classes worldwide and appears as an adjudicator on panels for international competitions.
