Pianist William Bracken is just twenty-two years old but has already achieved many of his ambitions, including performing Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 3 at Liverpool’s Philharmonic Hall, and winning first prize at several international competitions.

Born into a musical family, he began playing at four and his studies have taken him first to the Royal Northern College of Music and then the Guildhall, where he studies with Ronan O’Hara and Martin Roscoe.  William is also a keen jazz performer, composer and arranger.

Programme to include:

Franz Liszt (1811-1886): Ballade No.2 in B minor S.171

Maurice Ravel (1875-1937): Gaspard de la Nuit

‘I was very fortunate to see a young pianist [William Bracken] of immense talent playing at an event today.’
