I was at RAK Studios in London a couple of weeks ago, playing piano as part of a comedy sketch with Robbie Williams and Jamie Cullum. I even had tattoo’s painted on my hands so they looked like it was Robbie playing the piano… was a lot of fun!

The sketch was part of Not The Robbie Williams Christmas Show which was shown on ITV on December 8th.

Last week I performed a lunchtime concert at St. James’s Church in Piccadilly, London. I have visited St. James’s on several occasions to watch recitals and I always love coming here for the peaceful atmosphere it creates in the middle of the city.

The church was designed by Sir Christopher Wren after The Great Fire of London and the acoustics are perfect for a piano recital.

The programme I performed included works by Scarlatti, Chopin and Strauss.

The audience were incredibly supportive which was great for my performance. Thank you to everyone who helped to organise the recital and to everyone who came to watch. Special thanks to Josephine Cumming for the lovely gift!

I performed last week at The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge. The concert was held in one of the main galleries, so the art on display created the perfect accompaniment to the pieces I was performing.

The Fitzwilliam is actually one of my favourite places in Cambridge, it’s a great place to visit for a relaxing few hours and the art on display is exceptional.

Here is my performance of Chopins Sonata Number 1 from the concert.

The programme includes pieces by Chopin, Grรผnfeld and Scarlatti.

Really happy to be opening this seasons Absolute Classics series of concerts.
