Gwilym Simcock and Royal Northern Sinfonia

Sage Two

The last decade has seen Gwilym Simcock develop from an outrageously talented young pianist into one of the most gifted instrumentalists and composers on the European scene. He moves effortlessly between jazz and classical music, widely acclaimed as ‘engaging, exciting, often unexpected, melodically enthralling, complex yet hugely accessible’, and above all ‘wonderfully optimistic’.

For this concert he performs solo, with a trio featuring his regular collaborator Russian bass player Yuri Goloubev and Martin France on drums, and also with Royal Northern Sinfonia, conducted by Clark Rundell. He will be performing his exciting suite Move! originally commissioned by City of London Sinfonia and recorded on his Instrumation album.

“Gwilym’s an original. A creative genius” Chick Corea

“I feel confident that Simcock already deserves to occupy the inner circle of the great contemporary pianists along with Mehldau, Jarrett, and Rubalcaba” David Kane, Cadence USA
