(from Kurt’s website)
The guidance of Henry Fairs and Daniel Moult, combined with BMus and current MMus studies at Birmingham Conservatoire, has lead Kurt to a consistent record of musical excellence and outstanding criticism. During undergraduate years Kurt: participated in Master classes with leading international organists, received the Conservatoire’s Geoffrey Knowles Memorial Fund in 2015, performed the complete published works of Cameron Carpenter and participated in the 2016 Smarano International Organ Academy. Previous teachers have included, Roland Robertson of Prior Park College, Bath and Stephen Lacey of St. Andrew’s, Farnham. Kurt’s playing has taken him to venues such as St. Paul’s Cathedral, London, the Orgelpark, Amsterdam and St Petri Hauptkirche of Hamburg.

Research and project based performances play a key role in Kurt’s activities, this year to include Bach’s Goldberg Variations BWV 988. Recently, Kurt has begun to expand activities as a keyboardist, studying Harpsichord and including piano music as part of his repertoire, including transcriptions of Chopin’s preludes and Scriabin’s Piano Sonata No. 5.

Kurt’s role as a composer has seen commissions of original works, in particularly Dimensional Disparity (2016), which received much critical acclaim. New performers of the work include Henry Fairs and prizewinning graduate of the Royal Academy of Music, Richard Braiser of St. Laurence, Upminster
