Daniel Hill (piano)

Cornish-born Daniel received his musical education at Wells Cathedral School and the Royal College of Music, where his piano teachers were John Byrne and John Barstow.

Winner of the Hopkinson Gold Medal and as soloist in Constant Lambert’s Piano Concerto under the baton of Ian Brown, Daniel graduated with 1st Class Honours and a Postgraduate Distinction in Performance.  Thereupon he became a Junior Fellow of the RCM, during which two year period he began to establish himself as an active and diverse musician, as comfortable in solo repertoire and chamber music as accompaniment and teaching.

He has performed all over the world at venues which include the Wigmore Hall, Southbank Centre, National Concert Hall Dublin, Hochschule der Künste Berlin and University of Iowa; and has broadcast frequently on BBC Radio 3, Classic FM, BBC2 and Radio France.  Recent performances have included Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto and appearing in the Brass Final of the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition which was shown on BBC television.

Daniel holds teaching positions at the Royal College of Music, Wycombe Abbey School and Charterhouse, and is Organist and Director of Music at St. Michael’s Parish Church, Camberley.



Ben Goldscheider: Debut - WHR045Willowhayne Records presents the debut recording by BBC Young Musician Grand Finalist Ben Goldscheider.

The idea behind this CD was to present a concert programme taking the listener on a musical journey through the development of the horn and the subsequent music written for it. Starting in the 21st century and then jumping to classical, through romantic, early and late twentieth century and back to the 21st century, this disc shows the full range of the horn's versatility, as well as the technical and musical maturity of this exceptional artist.     More >>

Daniel Hill plays Schubert & Mussorgsky - WHR042Although these two masterpieces are of differing styles - the Schubert (1828) being a 4 movement sonata in the Viennese classical tradition and the Mussorgsky (1874) a sequence of 15 short sections in a deliberately Russian idiom that rejects western European influence, there are parallels between them. Neither was published until after their composer’s death, the sonata in 1838 and Pictures in 1931, though an edited version by Rimsky-Korsakov had appeared in 1886. Neither work received real appreciation and understanding until the 20th century.     More >>
