“Susie Allan’s pianistic touch is magical”

(Seen & Heard International)

Susie Allan, one of today’s most perceptive collaborative pianists, has performed with international vocal soloists including Emma Bell, Susan Gritton, Rowan Pierce, Jonathan McGovern and Mark Padmore. She has accompanied masterclasses by Sir Thomas Allen, Elly Ameling and Roger Vignoles at the Britten-Pears School. In demand as a coach and teacher, she has held posts at the Royal College of Music and Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, and adjudicated for the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire’s English Song Prize. She is a visiting piano teacher at Radley College, Oxford and Shrewsbury School.

In a collaboration with baritone Roderick Williams spanning over twenty years they perform across the UK and internationally. In 2022 for the 150th anniversary of Ralph Vaughan Williams’ birth the duo performed at The Wigmore Hall, LSO St Luke’s, Bath Mozart Fest and Malvern Concert Club. Their third disc for the SOMM Recordings label released in 2020 explores the songs of Arthur Somervell about which Gramophone magazine commented “Superbly partnered by Susie Allan (whose deft touch and ingratiating tone are a constant source of pleasure)”. Susie‘s next project for SOMM Recordings of Stanford’s Children’s Songs in collaboration with mezzo Kitty Whately and baritone Gareth Brynmor John (released 2022) has also won high praise. She is a regular guest of the UK’s most prestigious venues and concert societies appearing at the Wigmore Hall, Purcell Room, Champs Hill, Globe Theatre, and festivals including the Buxton, Endellion, Oxford Lieder and Three Choirs. She has recorded for BBC Radio 3 and for television, including BBC Proms Extra.
