Notes & Reviews:

Keith Swallow won a West Riding scholarship at the age of sixteen to study at the Royal Manchester College of Music, where he was awarded prizes, diplomas and an M. Mus. From the Royal College of Music. A familiar figure at concerts throughout Britain, he has also played in Europe and the USA. Although he considers himself primarily an accompanist, he is in constant demand as a soloist - albeit a reluctant one - and is widely known for his performances of 20th century English music. John Wilson commenced his musical education at the Northern School of Music Junior School in 1953, where he studied piano. In 1955, he entered the Senior College of the Northern School where he was appointed staff accompanist. Upon the amalgamation of the NSM and the RMCM to form the Northern (subsequently Royal Northern) College of Music, he became head of the opera music staff for two years. In 1975, he took up the post as Senior Staff Accompanist and Group Coordinator at the College, a post he retained until his retirement in 2004
