David Matthews

Keith Williamson
Born in Croydon 1956, moved to Kent in 1986. Pianist/composer, largely self-taught in composition, performed in various jazz ensembles, sessions with Pete King, Don Weller and Brass Impact. First orchestral performance: Paradise Dance in 1995 by The Surrey Sinfonietta. Recently, works performed by the London Chamber Group, London Contemporary Chamber Orchestra and London Consorts of Winds.

Music is a house of many rooms, each representing differing musical genres and styles. The doors of those rooms should always be kept open. Serious music distanced itself with sterile academic aridity in the latter 20thC, however the trend to the banal, simplistic, ephemeral and novelty, is really no solution.
