Graham Caskie

Graham Caskie was born in Darlington in 1967, and studied at the Birmingham Conservatoire and Royal Academy of Music under Frank Wibaut, Hamish Milne and Alexander Kelly. He currently teaches at The Royal Academy of Music and Chetham’s School of Music as well as at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.

Particularly renowned for his interpretations of the piano music of Debussy, Ravel, Brahms and Schubert, Graham is also a keen advocate of contemporary music; his first CD recording in 1993 for the Metier label included the Tippett Third Sonata, a work which he had previously studied with the composer.

Current chamber music partnerships include a duo with cellist Thomas Carroll, introducing into their programmes new works specially written for them by composer Stephen Goss.

HIs first recording for the Cadenza label was the critically acclaimed CD, Preludes and Interludes, for which Stephen Goss was commissioned to write nine Interludes, designed to be played amongst the Twelve Debussy Preludes, Book One.

This year Graham will release a new CD on the Cadenza label comprising the Chopin E minor Concerto with the Badke String Quartet and the Chopin Cello Sonata with Thomas Carroll.
