 PHILLIP DYSON 

 INTERNATIONAL CONCERT PIANIST

 

CONCERT & RECORDING REVIEWS

 

“The superb sound and tone colours from Mr Dyson sent shivers down my spine. The slow movement showed just what skills the pianist possessed in the depth of tone and legato melodic line. Beautifully constructed. Perfectly judged and administered, capturing the differing moods of each movement to perfection.

 

“Phillip seamlessly travelled from the earliest Mazurka to the posthumous Fantaisie-Impromptu, surprising and captivating his audience at every turn. Dramatic, exciting, enchanting, heart stopping, virtuosic, sheer poetry.  A journey through Chopin, all played to perfection!

 

“It was time to go home, but given a choice, I believe the audience

would have opted to stay all night.”

The Light Music Society

 

"... of all the distinguished pianists who have performed the composition over the years I cannot think o fany who have added so much to my work as has Phillip Dyson on each occasion it has been my privilege to hear him perform the Fantasy.  His interpretation of my work was so sympathetic and so exactly what I had in mind when I wrote the piece that it was quite uncanny.  He gave a wonderful performance, perfect, superb!"

Sir Malcolm Arnold

 

“Delicate precision and flawless sensitivity.  Fluid patterns of pulse and poetry flowed through Dyson’s fingertips … magnificent finger work.  An exhilarating feast of classical and ragtime.”

Pacifica Tribune, San Francisco

 

“Brilliant.”

Edward Greenfield, Gramophone

 

“Phillip Dyson outstanding …”

BBC Music Magazine

 

“Chopin’s Ballade No. 3 found both pianist and composer vying for Poet of the Night prize.  Phillip’s dry sense of humour added entertainment value to an intensely musical evening.”

Time and Leisure

 

"Dyson’s performance brought a prolonged standing ovation.  In addition to his sparkling piano style, he exhibits a coy, very British sense of humour as understated as one of those little cucumber sandwiches with the crusts cut off served at high tea, and he has a comic timing worthy of Jack Benny."

Sacramento Ragtime Society, USA

 

"Phillip Dyson's brilliance, excellent musicality and beautiful tone colours were served by a pure and efficient technique.  A performance of great merit!"

El Adelantado de Segovia

 

“Phillip Dyson is the virtuoso soloist.”

Music Web International

 

“Featuring the refined pianism of Phillip Dyson.  Few pianists have both the technique and the inclination to tackle of the music of Billy Mayerl.  Fortunately, Dyson has there quisite qualities in spades, together with a wonderfully dry sense of humour, which extended to his playing.”

The Times, Vancouver Island, Canada

 

"Phillip Dyson has an obvious penchant for Mayerl's charmers and plays them with love and sincerity ... a delicious tribute, superbly recorded!"

Gramophone

  

“Phillip Dyson … scintillating.”

The Northern Echo

 

 “Phillip Dyson, a stylish soloist.”

Andrew Achenbach, Amazon

 

“Superb.”

Time and Leisure

 

"…a rhapsodic walk through beautiful sound."

Jean’s Magazines, San Francisco

 

"A highly recommended and thoroughly enjoyable recital played with affection and conviction. Phillip Dyson mixes the well known with the less familiar in performances of sparkle and wit."

Classic CD

 

 “Phillip Dyson ... the renowned, innovative and most sought after British pianist ... began his performance with Beethoven and ended with Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue to a standing ovation from the audience.”

The CITIZEN, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

 

“Excellent.”

The Light Music Society

 

“This was obviously a fun evening at the Purcell Room.  Who knows this repertoire with as much sustained affection as Phillip Dyson?”

Music Web International

 

"The Piano Man Can … a typically Dysonesque potpourri of early jazz and ragtime, that only Phillip could have devised."

Chris Wood, Time and Leisure
