We are delighted to welcome RICCARDO PES and ALEXANDER BOYD. Riccardo collaborated with us on the Online Series in 2020 during the Pandemic.
RICCARDO PES was born in Spilimbergo, Italy and studied at the Music Conservatory ‘Benedetto Marcello’ in Venice and attended the High Specialization Music Courses held by Giovanni Sollima at Accademia Nazionale Santa Cecilia in Rome. Subsequently he graduated from the Royal College of Music, where he was an RCM Scholar, supported by numerous awards.
Riccardo has studied composition and counterpoint with the composers Battista Pradal and Mario Pagotto.
He is a keen chamber musician and he is currently co-founder and artistic director of the Vendramelli String Orchestra, a string ensemble formed by established musicians and young talents. In July 2021, Riccardo released QUBIT, an album of his own compositions inspired by Physics and Astrophysics.
Appreciated for the sensitivity and integrity of his interpretations, London based pianist and composer ALEXANDER BOYD enjoys an international career as both soloist and chamber musician.
He made his Concerto debut in 1983 with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra conducted by Yerzy Maksymiuk. Since his London Wigmore Hall debut in 2001 he has regularly performed there and at many of the UK’s leading concert halls, including London’s South Bank Centre, Barbican, Conway Hall, St Johns Smith Square, St Martins in the Fields, Birmingham’s Barber Institute and Cardiff’s St David’s Hall. He has performed throughout Europe and the US, also appearing at international festivals such as Yale and Tanglewood (US), Aldeburgh (UK), Banff (Canada) and Huntingdon (Australia).
