Pianist

 
 

Hannah trained as a post-graduate at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance studying with Douglas Finch. She specialised in contemporary repertoire as a soloist and ensemble pianist covering works by composers such as Karlheinz Stockhausen and Helmut Lachenmann as well as Charles Ives and Roger Smalley. She has been privileged to perform to Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, Judith Weir and the late John McCabe and to have been coached by the Danel Quartet, John McCabe and Matthias Herman. She particularly enjoys working with composers and has collaborated on a piece by Josh Spear, Paths Which Taper, which was performed at Rude Health at Trinity Laban in February 2013. Hannah was also a highly commended finalist in the John Halford Competition 2013 at Trinity Laban adjudicated by Andrew Zolinsky.

 

Primarily performing as a soprano now, Hannah enjoys accompanying singers. She works most often with tenor Guy Cutting, with whom she performs English song including Britten, Gurney, Butterworth and Finzi. Together they have performed in London, Dorset, Oxford, Bristol and Oundle and have enjoyed coaching with Roger Vignoles.


Hannah enjoys performing less contemporary music too such as Grieg’s Piano Concerto in A minor (2009) with the Dorset County Orchestra and Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue (2008) at Poole’s Lighthouse.
