Nathan Williamson (b.1978) is a pianist, composer and artistic director. Alongside regular solo, chamber and concerto performances, Nathan is in demand for new work from a wide variety of artists both at home and abroad. He also stages and facilitates projects at local and national level, ranging from collaborations on new repertoire, performances for the concert hall and theatre, and music-making activities for musicians of all ages and abilities.

Nathan celebrated Beethoven’s 250th anniversary in 2020 with a cycle of the  complete Piano Concertos with the Prometheus Orchestra at Aldeburgh Jubilee Hall. The first four concertos were performed over a weekend in February, but the ‘Emperor’ Concerto, originally scheduled for October, has been postponed. 

Nathan’s debut recording, Brahms and Schubert: Late Piano Works, was reviewed  by Donald Sturrock as ‘a truly electrifying debut from a musician with a rare marriage of thoughtfulness and passion… I doubt this Sonata [Schubert D.959] has ever had a more powerful advocate.’ His first CD for SOMM, Great American  Sonatas (2017), was hailed by Musical Opinion as ‘a landmark in recordings of  American Piano Music’ and his second disc, Colour and Light, of British 20th century  piano works, was chosen as Album of the Month in International Piano Quarterly:  ‘No praise could be high enough of Williamson’s performances…

June 2021 will see the release of the second volume of ‘100 Years of British Song’ on SOMM Recordings, a three CD project with the tenor James Gilchrist of British music including premiere recordings of work by Gustav Holst, Doreen Carwithen, Elizabeth Maconchy, John Woolrich, Geoffrey Poole, and Nathan’s own songs, as well as work by Frank Bridge, Alan Bush, Rebecca Clarke, Madeleine Dring, Peter Dickinson, Ivor Gurney, William Alwyn, and Alan Rawsthorne.
