He made his concerto debut performing Mozart’s Piano Concerto No 20 with the Meadows Chamber Orchestra in Edinburgh in 2010. Since winning the title of Aberdeen Young Musician of the Year, he has performed concertos by Schumann, Prokofiev, Rachmaninoff and Grieg with orchestras in Scotland. He went on to study at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, obtaining his Master’s and Bachelor’s degrees with Distinction. Notable prizes include 3rd Prize at 2019 Norah Sande Awards, Highly Commended Prize at 2019 Bromsgrove International Musicians’ Competition and 3rd Prize at 2018 Windsor International Piano Competition, which led to an invitation to join the KNS Classical Label.

He is grateful for the support by the Leathersellers’ Company, Deena Shypitka Music Award, Dewar Arts Awards, Phyllis Simons Award, the Guildhall School Trust and Christine Brown Trust. As a teacher, Raymond is a visiting piano specialist at St Albans High School for Girls and St Philomena’s Catholic High School for Girls.
Josh Salter studied at the Royal Northern College of Music, where he held a scholarship and was awarded prizes for cello and chamber music, and as a postgraduate at the Royal Academy of Music, receiving the Sylvia Simpson Fellowship and graduating MA with Distinction in 2016.
