Day 3 – Friday 29.06.07

Friday Rush Hour Piano Recital – Helen Reid

A great way to start the weekend, sit down and enjoy this one hour recital by pianist Helen Reid!

Helen Reid first came to public attention when she appeared on BBC2 in the National Keyboard Finals of the BBC Young Musician competition in 1998. In 2000 she won first prize in the Karic International Piano Competition.

Helen has given recitals all over England, at venues including the Wigmore Hall, Purcell Room, Fairfield Halls and Blackheath Halls, London. Helen’s solo repertoire is wide-ranging and includes works from the 18th, 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. In August 2003 she performed at a Pre-Prom portrait of the composer Chen Yi at the V&A, which was broadcast on BBC Radio 3. Helen is currently professor of piano at the Guildhall School of Music, Trinity College of Music Junior Department and Leeds College of Music.

‘It was clear we were in not only capable but rather a special pair of hands …Reid’s beautifully poised, tenderly imagined and finely focused playing re-educated and refined the ear.’ - Hilary Finch, The Times
