David Gordon Piano
There are few musicians who cross musical boundaries with as little effort and as much enjoyment as David Gordon.
David has degrees in Mathematics and Logic but, instead, decided on a life in music that has taken him from Ronnie Scott's to the Red Sea Jazz Festival and the Copenhagen Jazzhouse, with any number of smoky dives on the way. He is a regular at jazz festivals with his own group, the David Gordon Trio, and with violinist Christian Garrick and vocalist Jacqui Dankworth. In the classical world he has collaborated with artists such as Andrew Manze and Nigel Kennedy and is frequently invited to direct leading ensembles such as the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra.
His many recordings with his trio have earned rave reviews and over 20 CDs featuring his compositions have established him as a unique talent on the British music scene. In 2009 he was awarded an Ability Media International Award for 'Semmerwater', a community musical play commissioned by the Swaledale Festival.
With a passion for the music of South America David is always in his element whether he’s playing samba rhythms at 606 Club, improvising fugues at the harpsichord in an Austrian concert hall, or playing Piazzolla in Hackney.
'...has the wonderful ability to make piano notes glisten like jewelled drops of water'
