    Lunchtime Recital - Stephen Raine (piano)
    Stephen Raine
    Charlton House London SE7 8RE
    United Kingdom

    British pianist Stephen Raine is an imaginative artist who is motivated to bring classical music to an all-encompassing audience. Born in Durham, Stephen began studying music at the age of 6. He first played the Piano Accordion and performed frequently in concerts and festivals throughout his childhood. He began studying the piano after being inspired by hearing the music of Johann Sebastian Bach and includes Bach in many of his performances.

    Stephen moved to London in 2010 to study at the London College of Music. He graduated in 2013 with a First Class Honours degree and a Licentiate of the London College of Music (LLCM) diploma in Classical Piano Performance. While studying with ‘Jill Crossland’ he developed a particular affinity with Baroque and Classical repertoire, specialising in the study and performance of Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier. Previous highlights include receiving the highest grade in the 2010 AQA Media Studies A Level out of 51,000 UK candidates, for which he received the top student award in London.

    In 2013 Stephen performed in various UK venues and was invited in July to perform several recitals at the 40 Fingers International Music Festival in Rome. In 2014, Stephen was broadcast live on Radio Libera Tutti and Vatican Radio with performances from recitals in Italy.

    Stephen has worked at IMG Artists - London, being amongst the top level of the classical music industry in terms of both management and artists. Becoming familiar and confident with the practices of a global artist management agency enriched Stephen’s industry knowledge and inspiration.
