Graham J Lloyd (piano)

Graham J Lloyd was born on the Wirral in 1963. He began his piano studies at the relatively late age of 14 and only four years later gave his debut recital in Liverpool, in a performance of Saint-Saëns’s Carnaval des Animaux. He studied at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester with the renowned Polish pianist Ryszard Bakst and where, as a chamber musician, he was coached by the late Denis Matthews. He has worked as a soloist—Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No 1; chamber musician—Beethoven’s Complete Sonatas for Violin and Piano, Schubert’s Trout Quintet and in particular as an accompanist to many singers. He has specialised in recording the works of his partner Ian Venables and the CD ‘The Songs of Ian Venables’ received much critical acclaim ‘…the singer is ably supported by pianist Graham Lloyd…’ (Gramophone). He has also recorded Venables’ music for strings and piano with members of the Coull Quartet on the SOMM label ‘…pianist (Graham) Lloyd adding much to the sense of grandeur in the music…’ (International Record Review) and the same composer’s complete piano music on the NAXOS label. He combines a busy teaching career with recording, adjudicating and arranging.
