Ian Buckle – 400 Years of Keyboard Music

Ian Buckle enjoys a busy and varied freelance career, working as soloist, accompanist, chamber musician, orchestral pianist and teacher. He has appeared as soloist with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic,  and gives recitals regularly at festivals throughout the UK. Ian’s wonderful programme explores four centuries of music composed for the piano and its predecessors; it’s no history lesson but a vibrant collection, celebrating some of the best music written from Byrd’s pre-baroque marvels to music written especially for Ian and this programme based on tunes well known to folk in Lancashire and beyond!
