Tim Horton

You can hear Tim in recital with Matthew Hunt on Thursday 6th October and have a masterclass or coaching with him on Friday 7th October

Tim Horton's piano playing is a revelation - his total absorption in the music means he is never a prima donna, always the perfect chamber musician Shropshire Star

In 1995 Tim was asked at short notice to replace Alfred Brendel in two performances of Schoenberg’s Piano Concerto with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and Sir Simon Rattle at Symphony Hall, Birmingham and the Royal Festival Hall, London. He has since performed with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra and the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group.

In 2005 Tim was chosen as the scholar of the Klavier Festival Ruhr at the recommendation of Alfred Brendel.

Tim has performed at the Aldeburgh Festival with the Elias Quartet and at the Bath Festival. Tim has collaborated with many chamber musicians including Paul Lewis, Peter Cropper, the Elias Quartet, the Vertavo Quartet, Christian Poltera, Charles Owen and the members of the Kungsbacka Piano Trio. He has a regular duo partnership with violist Robin Ireland. Their CD of Shostakovich and Prokofiev is due for release in 2010. In 2009 Tim gave concerts in Essen and Hannover as part of series devised by Alfred Brendel.

Future plans include performances at a Mendelssohn Festival in King’s Place, London with the Elias Quartet, concerts in Germany and tours of Britain with Ensemble 360, a return visit to the Vertavo Quartet’s festival in Elverum, Norway and a recording of the Brahms Viola Sonatas with Henninge Landaas.
