ArtistsGeoff Eales (piano)
The Welsh pianist/composer/improviser Geoff Eales has enjoyed an incredibly varied career in music. At Cardiff University he studied composition under Professor Alun Hoddinott and piano with Martin Jones. He was awarded a PhD for his large-scale work 'An American Symphony', and for his chamber setting of the Dylan Thomas' poem 'In the Beginning', for tenor, horn and piano. Other early works include a piano concerto, string quartet, brass quintet and 'A Sussex Rhapsody', the latter commissioned by the BBC.
“One of the biggest challenges facing an improvising musician is to deliver a performance that holds the attention of the listener when playing completely solo. To achieve success, one must dig deep into one’s musical psyche in order to invoke the muse within. The improvisations on the album are all unedited single-takes. I was helped enormously in my task by having such a wonderful instrument at my disposal. This, combined with the benevolent acoustic of Wyastone’s magnificent concert hall, ensured that I was given the very best chance to succeed.” - Geoff Eales
