Martin Bickerton, classical guitar

martin_bickerton

Programme: (to follow)

Martin Bickerton is one of the most exciting young guitarists of his generation. He studied at the prestigious Chetham’s School of Music and was then awarded a major entrance scholarship to the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester where he studied with Craig Ogden and Gordon Crosskey. In 2011 Martin graduated with a first class Honours degree from the RNCM and has since been studying privately with Edoardo Catemario in Napoli and Sienna, Italy, with the generous support of the Countess of Munster Charitable Trust. From September 2014, Martin will be undertaking further study with Peter Cropper from the Lindsay String Quartet.

Born in Southport, England in 1989, Martin started his musical life studying percussion and singing but at the age of 10 became inspired by the guitar for its combination of percussive and lyrical qualities.

Since entering the Royal Northern College of Music in 2007, Martin was been extremely active as a soloist and chamber musician. Whilst at the RNCM, Martin developed a successful guitar duo with guitarist Amy Perry (Astrum Guitar Duo). In 2011 Martin performed with the BBC singers in a performance that was broadcast on BBC Radio 3’s In Tune. In 2012, Martin was invited to perform for the Queen as part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations. He has also recently released a debut guitar duo CD, Inspirado Por Espana.

Martin Bickerton plays a 7 string guitar by the English luthier Stephen Hill and is generously supported by the Countess of Munster musical trust.

The Gould Piano Trio

Programme:
BEETHOVEN: Kakadu Variations
MacMILLAN: Piano Trio 2
TCHAIKOWSKY: Piano Trio 

Recently compared to the Beaux Art Trio by the Washington Post for their 'musical fire' and dedication to the genre, the Gould Piano Trio continue to bring masterieces of their repertoire to an ever-widening public.

After winning Melbourne's inaugural International Chamber Music Competition, the Goulds quickly established a worldwide reputation with many tours throughout Europe, the USA, South America, the Far East and New Zealand.

Following their highly regarded rendition of  James MacMillan's Fourteen Little Pieces, they commissioned a second piano trio from the composer which premiered at the Bath Internationa Music Festival in May 2014 and subsequently toured the UK.  They have also performed complete cycles of the Dvorak trios at Wigmore Hall and the beethove trios at St. George's Bristol.  Their Brahms cycle is unique in that it includes both his early trios and those for clarinet and horne and their exploration into the works of the late British romantics such as Standford, Ireland, Bax, Scott and Milford has brought critical acclaim.
