Libby Burgess, Piano

Libby Burgess is a pianist dedicated to the fields of song and chamber music, working with some of the finest singers and instrumentalists of her generation. She enjoys a diverse song recital schedule, ranging from the Wigmore Hall and St John's, Smith Square to the Aldeburgh, Buxton and Oxford Lieder Festivals; from music societies around the country to broadcasts on Radio 3. A committed chamber musician, Libby relishes partnerships with a range of string and woodwind players, collaborates regularly with The Berkeley Ensemble, and recently performed in The Sacconi Quartet's festival. Her 2013 disc The English Oboe: Rediscovered, with oboist James Turnbull has received excellent reviews, and in 2013 Libby established Konstellation, which champions the combined programming possibilities of song and chamber music.

Born in Sussex, Libby read music at Oxford, where she was the first female organ scholar at  Christ Church Cathedral, before specialising in piano accompaniment with a postgraduate scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music, where she was awarded numerous accompanist prizes and graduated with the DipRAM for an outstandingly high final recital mark. She was part of the first-prize duo of the Wigmore Hall International Song Competition 2009.

Libby's passion for working with singers extends beyond the piano: she has conducted Ryedale Festival Opera's productions of Britten The Prodigal Son and Mendelssohn The Homecoming, and was chorusmaster for the world premiere of Maxwell Davies Kommilitonen! Libby is resident accompanist on courses ranging from Dartington International Summer School to the annual Cello Gathering, gives masterclasses in schools and universities, and is a visiting piano tutor at Eton College.
