The Artist

Based in both London and Manchester, Lewis Kingsley Peart enjoys a busy life as a working musician. Organising projects as both soloist and collaborator, he programmes a wide variety of music from the traditional classical canon, right through to jazz and the avant-garde. With a strong background in theatre, his appearances are never without verve.

Lewis made his debut at St John’s, Smith Square in March 2018 in a programme of music celebrating the 75th birthday of the American composer, Stephen Montague. In the summer of 2021, he had the privilege of working with British concert pianist and composer, Stephen Hough, on his third piano sonata, ‘Trinitas’, for the Trinity Laban New Lights Festival of Contemporary Music. Highlights of the 2022 season included a concert for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival at St Mary’s Cathedral, and his debut recital at London’s St Martin-in-the-Fields. Lewis looks forward to future recital engagements and is excited to make his concerto debut in 2024.

Lewis is a Chethams School of Music alumnus and graduate of London’s Trinity Laban Conservatoire where he studied with Philip Fowke and Alisdair Hogarth.

‘Chopinesque melodic interjections and Lisztian extravagance, all masterfully and very wittily handled by Lewis Kingsley Peart.’
– Frances Wilson, The Cross-Eyed Pianist

‘Exciting, enterprising and even daring!’
– Leslie Howard, concert pianist

‘Not only technically but theatrically a real tour de force! I was thrilled by his performance at every level.’
– Stephen Montague, composer
