Abide with me
All creatures of our God and King
All my hope in God is founded
All things bright and beautiful
And can it be (Amazing love)
Be still for the presence
Be thou my vision
Bind us together
Come down, O Love divine
Dear Lord and Father of mankind
Give me joy in my heart
Great is Thy faithfulness
Guide me, O thou great Redeemer
Hail Redeemer, King devine
How great thou art
I vow to thee my country
In Christ alone
Joyful, joyful we adore Thee
Lead us, heavenly Father, lead us
Let all the world in every corner sing
Lord of all hopefulness, Lord of all joy
Lord of the dance
Love divine, all loves excelling
Make me a channel of your peace
Morning has broken
One more step along the world I go
Praise my soul, the King of heaven
Shine, Jesus shine
Tell out my soul
The King of love my shepherd is
The Lord's my shepherd
To God be the glory
What do your clients love most about your performances?
I would like to say they are happy about the music and my performance, hopefully about my professional attitude (including getting back to them on time and clearly via email or phone calls) and sensitive choice of repertoire and hopefully me being helpful and experience with musical choices.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
I played on the continent as well as here in the UK, mostly it will be concert halls, churches, theatres, schools, galleries from known London venues it'll be Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall, St James Piccadilly, St John's Smith Square, St Martin in the Fields, Freemasons Hall.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
This is a hard question. I believe I got influenced by many during my musical growth as time passes by. The pop scene is very changeable and therefore it's hard for me to point in the certain direction. Also I am focused on classical repertoire but there were times where I believed the band Queen had formed me in a way.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
At the Royal Albert Hall performing the Messiah by Handel playing with Royal Philharmonic Orchestra for full house, for about 5000 people. Being in the orchestra is fun and one feels like one body while playing together but I felt the pressure when (at certain points) other players drop off and there's just me on the harpsichord plus one cellist playing.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I would very rarely plan another event on the day of your event - just to assure the calmness and joy and avoid stress and rushing.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Mostly I play classical music and acoustic instruments so I am afraid I won't have an equipment for this.
How much time do you need to set up?
if I bring my own electric piano it'll usually take only few minutes, if I am bringing my harpsichord - I will need about half an hour to load the instrument and tune it. If it's a church organ I am not familiar with again it will only take few minutes to try out all the registers and see what sort of condition the is instrument in.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
I have some suggested repertoire on encore's sites so feel free to get inspired but I am also happy to go with your own taste and musical wish.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes that's also the part of my job. I can bring my electric keyboard, speaker or even my harpsichord.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
Yes, I am happy to do that although I would need some notice to learn the piece, depending on the difficulty and accessibility of the music. And besides I quite like the challenge and extending my repertoire if time allows.
