Richard Pearce was organ scholar at Trinity College, Cambridge, where as conductor and organist he toured and recorded extensively with the chapel choir. After graduating with first class honours in music, he studied piano accompaniment for two years at the Guildhall School.
As piano accompanist and organ soloist, Richard has given recitals in Westminster Abbey, the Louvré Museum, Paris and in Tokyo, as well as a series of recitals at London’s Banqueting House and broadcasts for BBC television and radio, S4C and Classic FM. Recent projects included trips to Switzerland, Japan, Italy, France and Sweden and recordings of songs by Respighi, Martucci and Pizzetti for Warner Classics with tenor José María Guerrero. He also enjoys working in the field of contemporary music, performing regularly with contemporary chamber ensemble Kokuro. He has performed with the Philharmonia Orchestra and BBC Symphony Orchestra in Promenade concerts and tours to Italy and Luxembourg.
Working with chamber choirs and choruses has become a speciality for Richard. He records and broadcasts regularly with the BBC Singers, most recently in recordings of Leighton, Wesley and Maconchy’s choral works. He has long-standing associations with the Royal Choral Society, as well as twice-yearly trips to Sweden to work with groups in the Stockholm and Malmö areas. He conducts the Waverley Singers, a choral society based in Farnham, Surrey.
When not busy in music and with his three children he is increasingly in demand designing websites for his own internet business.
