Duncan Honeybourne has established a colourful and diverse career as a pianist and in music education since his debut as soloist at Symphony Hall, Birmingham and the National Concert Hall, Dublin, in 1998. Recital debuts included London, Paris and the Miry Concertzaal in Ghent, Belgium, during the international Gentsche Festspiele. His first solo recital disc was described by Gramophone magazine as “not to be missed by all lovers of English music”, whilst BBC Music Magazine reported: “There are gorgeous things here. Hard to imagine better performances.”

Duncan has made extensive concert appearances as recitalist, concerto soloist and chamber musician in the UK, Ireland, France, Belgium and Switzerland. He has given recitals at major venues and leading festivals and has partnered many renowned artists in chamber music. His solo performances have been frequently broadcast on BBC Radio 3, Irish, Swiss and Finnish Radio, Radio France Musique, ABC Classic FM (Australia), Radio New Zealand Concert and in South Africa and the USA. Honeybourne has premiered major new piano works dedicated to him by celebrated composers, including the Third Sonata by John Joubert, the Andrew Downes Piano Concerto at Birmingham Town Hall, and many other pieces including the three miniatures featured today.

Duncan Honeybourne’s many recordings on several labels reflect his interest in British piano and chamber music. His solo discs include the complete piano music of EJ Moeran and Andrew Downes, music by Stanford, Elgar, Vaughan Williams and Holst, plus premiere recordings of piano works by Walford Davies, Ivor Gurney and many neglected and contemporary composers. His solo discs have been selected as MusicWeb International Recording of the Year and CD of the Week on FMR Radio in South Africa.

Duncan is a Tutor in Piano at the University of Southampton.
