Paul kicked off Piano! festival with a beautiful program that showcased his brilliant improvisational skills. His program featured original compositions that reflected influences from his career; from the iconic jazz composers such as Bud Powell, Ornette Colman through to the music of J.S Bach and the lyrical pop repertoire of Burt Bacharach.
It was great to have a Jazz musician performing as part of the festival, Paul’s innovation and creative energy has a great influence on students and audiences alike.
