Raphael Terroni

Raphael Terroni, who studied with John Vallier and Cyril Smith, won the first ISM/Nat West Festival Competition in 1979. Since then he has played at all the South Bank venues and at the Wigmore Hall and given recitals both at home and abroad, appearing at major festivals as a soloist, accompanist and chamber music player.

His repertoire includes Rachmaninov’s Fourth Piano Concerto, and concertos by John Ireland’ and Montague Phillips, as well as  standard repertoire.  He has worked for many years with Richard Baker giving first performances of several works for Narrator and Piano, and also with the Terroni Piano Trio.

He has made several recordings and received much critical acclaim for his CD of piano music by Lennox Berkeley. The BBC music magazine critic wrote: “I cannot imagine this delightful music being better served than on this disc.” His release of piano music and songs by Robin Milford was Editor’s Choice in Gramophone and is available on Toccata Classics. Other recordings of British music recently released are for Naxos (Berkeley and Ferguson) and the World premiere of Arnold Cooke’s two piano sonatas.

His latest recording is with the cellist Raphael Wallfisch in music by Kenneth Leighton.

Raphael is a Steinway artist.
