Jayson Gillham Piano

“A player of stunning dexterity and music brilliance”
- Limelight Magazine

The romantic hero is bold and uncompromising. Emotionally extreme, but also sensitive. Above all, the romantic hero is exceptional. 

Pianist Jayson Gillham, one of the leading lights of a new generation of truly international musical stars, certainly embodies these characteristics. Hot off the back of critically acclaimed performances at the Wigmore and Cadogan Halls, Jayson will make his debut performance with Manchester Collective in 2018.

Experience a programme that celebrates the breadth and scope of this unique voice with works by musical mavericks Robert Schumann, Nigel Westlake, and György Kurtág.
