Prize winner at the 2018 Buxton Festival, Eden performs varied programmes in the UK, and across mainland Europe; as soloist, and as a collaborative musician with a variety of ensembles.

 

With a diverse and wide repertoire, Eden is commended for his intellectual, bold, and creative performances of demanding programmes. He maintains a particular interest in piano music of the early 20th century, and enjoys discovering unduly neglected compositions.

 

Some highlight of Eden’s recent performing activity include: Beethoven Concerto No. 4, Bridge Piano Sonata (CBSO Centre, Birmingham); Liszt B minor Sonata (HMT Leipzig); Beethoven Sonata Op. 110, Scriabin 24 Preludes Op. 11 (Buxton Festival); and Liszt Réminiscences de Norma (Frederiksberg Rådhus); and Rachmaninoff Cello Sonata (Betty Nansen Teatret), with Finnish cellist, Iiris Tötterström.

 

Born in Nottingham, UK, Eden now lives in Copenhagen, Denmark. He currently studies on the master’s degree program at The Royal Danish Academy of Music; his teachers are Jens Elvekjær, and Emil Gryesten. Previous studies include those with Dr Robert Markham, and Mikhail Kazakevich, at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.

 

He also studied with Professor Alexander Meinel, at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater ‘Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy’, in Leipzig, Germany.
