Thomas Hell • Piano
‘His playing successfully combines intelligence with virtuosity.’ – Alfred Brendel
The pianist Thomas Hell has established his reputation in an unusually broad repertoire. His musical explorations include the standard masterpieces, but he is particularly known for his penetrating performances of works by twentieth-century composers, such as Elliott Carter, Charles Ives, Arnold Schoenberg, Luigi Dallapiccola and Pierre Boulez. More recently he has received great acclaim for his performances of the complete Etudes pour piano by György Ligeti in Darmstadt, Basel and Tokyo. He received the coveted German Record Critics’ Award. He has recorded piano works by Max Reger and Robert Schumann, as well as a disc containing the two violin sonatas by Béla Bartók, performed together with Adrian Adlam, and the complete Etudes pour piano by Ligeti (WERGO). Thomas Hell has won prizes at several international competitions. He performs widely throughout Europe as well as in Japan and Russia. Following several teaching posts at the universities of music in Hanover and Stuttgart, Thomas Hell was appointed professor of piano at the University of Music in Mainz in 2016.
Adrian Adlam • Violin
Adrian Adlam successfully combines careers as a violinist, conductor and educator. His varied musical career has led to his appearance as guest leader with several European orchestras including the London Symphony Orchestra, the Hague Philharmonic, the Orchestre d’Auvergne, the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie and the Scottish BBC Symphony Orchestra. He has collaborated with such distinguished conductors as Bernstein, Boulez, Mehta, Solti, Ozawa, Haitink, Maazel and Davis. He has given masterclasses in England and Spain, and broadcast for both radio and television. He has recorded numerous works of chamber music, and his recording of the complete violin sonatas by Carl Nielsen received a Supersonic Award. His live broadcasts of the Bartok Solo Sonata and Berg Violin Concerto on Deutschland Radio Berlin were acclaimed as combining technical expertise with musical integrity. Following a recital in the Wigmore Hall, Adlam’s playing was described in the Strad Magazine as ‘florid, lyrical and majestic’. Adlam is the principal conductor of the Camerata Freden Festival Ensemble and the Oxford Millennium Orchestra. In 2021 he joined the staff at Brockwood as a visiting music teacher.
