Watch my debut as music director
I am Jack and I’m a solo and collaborative pianist and a composer.
As a pianist, my mission is to play with integrity and honesty, and communicate the music with as much lyricism, atmosphere and emotion as necessary. I like to mix performances with spoken introductions, to help audiences appreciate the influences and stories behind the music.
I regularly collaborate with singers and have had success in song competitions. I’ve also played with my brother George in a piano duo.
The programme of this recital is yet to be confirmed. It will probably include some items from my previous recital, regrowth, as well as Chopin's Fantasie in F minor and a new premiere by Robert Ely ... as well as semi-autobiographical spoken monologues. Attendance for this concert is by invitation – please contact me for more details.
Alternative title: ‘how music stops me totally losing it’ Including the world premiere of 4 Humoresques by Robert Ely and the world premiere of my piece ‘song splinters‘. I’ll also be bringing some goodies from my concert in Sweden including reindeer - I mean Chopin and an improvisation on Lili Boulanger. As well as playing, I‘m probably going to talk about some of the music in the way of ‘what it means to me’ and how it stops me completely ‘losing it’ Entry is free; no ticket required; donations to the church are welcomed Programme: L. Boulanger~Jack Campbell: improvisation on “vous m’avez regardé avec toute votre âme” Schubert~Liszt: Am Meer, Ständchen von Shakespeare, Frühlingsglaube Jack Campbell: song splinters (world premiere)* Chopin: Fantasie in F Minor Robert Ely: Humoresques (world premiere)* * these pieces will have been performed once before at a private, invitation only event.
