Kelvin Grout,  piano
biography


The English pianist Kelvin Grout, began his studies when he was four and won his first competition when he was just six years old. He studied song accompaniment at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. His teachers there included David Wilde, Robin Bowman, Paul Hamburger and Graham Johnson. He also studied with Gerald Moore, Gerard Souzay, Geoffrey Parsons and Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, who subsequently invited him to work for her in her studio in Switzerland.

He has worked alongside many of the worlds leading singers in classes and concerts, these include, Jessye Norman, Gundela Janowitz, Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, Elly Ameling, Inessa Galante, Sarah Walker, Roberta Alexander, Thomas Hampson, Robert Tear, Peter Rose, Tom Krause and Maarten Koningsberger. He has made numerous recordings for television, radio and CD. As a composer he has written music for ballet, which has been performed throughout Europe, including the Bayreuth Festival.

Alongside his concert work he is recognised as an exceptional teacher, who offers an unusual approach to playing, believing that freedom of expression and beauty, should be the dominant force in performance. He has been asked to put his ideas into a book, the title of which is 'Behind the Notes'. Alongside this book there will also be a DVD with the same title. In the season 2006-2007 he will be giving classes and concerts under this title, to celebrate the fact that he has been playing the piano for fifty years.
