Paul Roberts is a rare combination of performer, teacher and author. As a leading exponent of French impressionism he has received high praise for his Debussy recitals and recordings and has recently released a disc of piano music by Ravel and Liszt. His seminal books on Debussy and Ravel, Images and Reflections and Debussy, are known around the world (‘the richness and colour of his involvement makes his books an endless source of reference and delight’ - Gramophone). He is now working on his fourth book, Reading Liszt. Roberts is a frequent guest at music conservatories worldwide, including Julliard, Peabody, Stockholm and Sydney, and has been Artist in Residence at the festival of Portland Piano International in Oregon for fourteen years. Roberts is a Professor of Piano and Honorary Fellow at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama and the founding director of the international piano summer school, Music at Albignac, in France.
