 Update me on new releases by Clarke

Raymond Clarke


Raymond Clarke was born in Bournemouth, England, in 1963. He held an academic scholarship whilst an undergraduate at Cambridge University, where he obtained his MA. After studying piano with Ryszard Bakst at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, he made his London South Bank Centre début in March 1988. The second half of the recital featured Ronald Stevenson’s 80-minute Passacaglia on DSCH (which he recorded for Marco Polo 8.223545) and the event was described by Music and Musicians as ‘truly a historic performance’ which according to the critic of The Times ‘simply left one in dazed admiration’.

Since then Raymond has been an active recitalist, and has appeared as piano soloist in over forty works with orchestra, ranging from Mozart’s concerti to Scriabin’s Prometheus, Bartók’s Concerto No. 2 and Messiaen’s Turangalîla-Symphonie. His radio broadcasts have featured repertoire ranging from Beethoven’s Sonata No. 32 in C Minor Op. 111 to Robert Simpson’s Piano Concerto with the BBC Symphony Orchestra. Two of his commercial CDs have been chosen by Gramophone magazine’s annual ‘Critics’ Choice’ retrospective as being among the best releases on any label.
