GRIMOIRE

Richard Deering, Rachel Nadin, Laurence Allix and Jeremy Brown

Following their Dusseldorf concert in May 2013 Piano 40 decided to disband due to internal disagreements. However, 2 of the members, Richard Deering and Jeremy Brown, were keen to keep the ensemble going with it's unique repertoire and library of original works written for them. As a sense of loyalty to the medium and to the many composers who had written such diverse works, the new group, called Grimoire, was "born" in October 2013 and the personnel is Richard Deering, Jeremy Brown, a previous Piano 40 member Rachel Nadin, and a Paris-based colleague Laurence Allix.

 

Reviews

"Their conerts are inventive, relaxed and very entertaining.  The players proved themselves to be in full control of the complexities of the Moscheles Grand Duo, voicing the parts with impressive clarity and bringing the whole to  a rhythmically vibrant and exciting end."    MUSICAL OPINION

"Those of us lucky enough to be in the audience, were given a pianistic treat of rare quality."     SUNDAY TIMES, MALTA
