north east scotland's festival of new music

Mark Tanner

Mark Tanner made his BBC television debut at the age of 13, playing Liszt, and he subsequently played in many master classes with revered soloists, including the three winners of the Tchaikovsky International Competition: Vladimir Ashkenazy, Peter Donohoe and the late John Ogdon. Following his concerto debut with the University of London Symphony Orchestra in 1991 playing Betthoven's 4th Piano Concerto, he has become increasingly in demand as a soloist. Mark's PhD, from the Birmingham Conservatoire, unravelled the performance history of Liszt's Sonata in B minor, a work he has performd many times. His findings have subsequently been published in America and in the UK and he is now also a music journalist for several leading music journals.

In recent years Mark has given four consecutive recitals at London's Wigmore Hall and a sell-out recital at the Purcell Room alongside several appearances at St. George's, Bristol. He has also played at St. John's Smith Square, London, Brangwyn Hall, Swansea, and the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge, London and also at the RWNCMD. He also records regularly for the Priory label and his recordings of music by British composers have received universal praise.
