Read a profile of Richard and a description of the pieces he wil be playing.

Richard lives in Liss, and has a distinguished international career as organist, pianist and accompanist. He records and broadcasts regularly with the BBC Singers and performs at many leading venues, including the Promenade concerts at the Royal Albert Hall. Richard has appeared for the Festival in the Queen’s Jubilee concert in 2012 (when he played Samuel Sebastian Wesley’s ‘outrageously over-the-top’ Variations on God Save the King) and with violinist Sara Deborah Timossi in a memorable violin and piano recital at St Peter’s Church in 2016.
