Mark Bebbington

Piano

Mark BebbingtonDescribed by Aldo Ciccolini as “…quite simply one of the most stunningly gifted young pianists I have been privileged to encounter…” Mark Bebbington has established a particular reputation as an exceptionally refined and elegant exponent of French music and under the auspices of the Kirckman Concert Society, he has given critically acclaimed South Bank recitals that have laid special emphasis on French nineteenth and twentieth Century pianistic traditions.

Writing in The Times of his Wigmore Hall debut, Hilary Finch described him as “…an artist who has clearly already made his mark. Bebbington always uses his virtuosity as a means not an end.” His Paris debut recital elicited an equally enthusiastic critical response and his distinctive artistry has been further confirmed by three concerto performances at Birmingham’s Symphony Hall with the London Concert and English Symphony Orchestras and his inclusion in numerous International recital and festival series.

Over recent seasons, Mark has toured extensively throughout Central and Northern Europe, the Far East and North Africa and has appeared as soloist with the London Philharmonic and Philharmonia Orchestras at the Barbican and Royal Festival Halls.

He has worked with many leading conductors, including Sir Georg Solti, Marco Zambelli and Norman del Mar and has appeared both as concerto soloist and Recitalist on BBC Television and Radio and also on Radio France.

Born in Coventry, Mark studied at the Royal College of Music with Phyllis Sellick and Kendall Taylor and later in Italy with Aldo Ciccolini.
