Ronan O'Hora has been Head of Keyboard Studies at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London since 1999 and has performed in every major country in Europe as well as in the USA, Canada, Australasia and South Africa working with leading conductors.
In previous visits to Leicester, he established a reputation for superlative performances. Ronan has performed over 80 concerts on BBC Radio 3 and has made highly regarded recordings in a discography which extends to over 30 CDs.
His sound is lustrous; his playing is lyrical and full of feeling; he thinks not only of the passing notes but of the overall form. Moreover, O'Hora is blessed with meticulous taste - there was not a vulgar, swooning or overstated passage in the program.
