Valerie Tryon is a British-born classical pianist, one of the youngest students ever to be admitted to the Royal Academy of Music and later receiving its highest award in piano playing.
Since 1971 she has resided in Canada but continues to pursue an international performing and recording career. Among her specialisms is the music of Franz Liszt, of which she has made a number of celebrated recordings.
Currently 'Artist-in-Residence' at McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Valerie Tryon is active as a concerto soloist, recitalist, chamber musician, accompanist and adjudicator.
She was appointed a Member of the Order of Canada in 2017 “For her internationally celebrated career as a pianist and for her contributions as an educator and builder of classical music culture”.
We are deeply grateful to Valerie for giving this inaugural solo recital on St Mary’s piano - a 6ft 3in grand in a bright ebonised case by the German maker Schimmel, who have been making fine pianos near Hanover since 1885. It was purchased by St Mary’s at auction, virtually brand new, with funds generously provided for the purpose in a legacy.
The concert is supported by Kay Williams Charitable Foundation Trust
Presented by St Mary The Virgin Twickenham
