David Owen Norris plays his signature repertoire
and reveals some of the more extraordinary experiences of his life in music.
A piano recital with a difference.
I often include pieces that no-one else plays. Walton’s Spitfire Prelude and Fugue, for instance, or Elgar’s coruscating Concert Allegro
that’s the beginning – wait till you hear the ending! Tales include the unvarnished truth about Jon Vickers and the Tweed Jacket, Sir Peter Pears and the Power of Suggestion, and how I rode my motorbike up the A12 with a harp strapped to my back.
Depending on the mood of the audience, I might play my new Song without Words upon a theme from HengeMusic
or sing the song I wrote for the Plain English Campaign.
Or possibly both.
