Last year’s talk was as vibrant as it was fun - for audience and artist alike. This year Penny Adie will be chatting to the 2019 Festival’s resident pianist Harvey Davies about his fascinating life in music. Harvey’s talents are many: he is one half of the Davies Duo (with pianist mother Helen), a founding member of the Pleyel Ensemble, a sought-after coach, accompanist, chamber musician and soloist. Harvey is also a Teaching Fellow and Staff Pianist at the Royal Northern College of Music and a passionate researcher; his endeavours have done much to ensure that the works of neglected composers such as Arnold Cooke are given the attention they deserve.
