Lifting the Lid

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”.
