Simon Mulligan

Piano

British pianist Simon Mulligan has been hailed by The Times as ‘the most abundantly gifted of pianists.’ Pulitzer prizewinning composer Paul Moravec calls him ‘a pianist with complete mastery of the instrument’, while Herbie Hancock says, ‘You have a phenomenal touch, man!’  In addition to his vast repertoire and extensive discography, Simon Mulligan’s collaborations include performances and recordings with Yehudi Menuhin, Joshua Bell, Leonard Slatkin and Sting. He has performed worldwide, most notably at Carnegie Hall in New York, Wigmore Hall and the Royal Albert Hall in London, Suntory Hall in Tokyo, as well as private at performances for Her Majesty the Queen and President Barack Obama. His keen interest in film composition led to a long association with composer Michael Kamen, culminating in his performance on the soundtrack to Spielberg’s Band of Brothers. Since the age of thirteen he has led his own jazz quartet which has performed at major international festivals. His versatile and eclectic career has led to profiles and media articles in Downbeat, JazzTimes, BBC Music, Classic FM, and the Gramophone magazines, among others. Simon Mulligan is a recipient of the prestigious Fellowship of the Royal Academy of Music. His mentors include Alexander Kelly, Murray Perahia, Alfred Brendel and Alexis Weissenberg.
