My recording of Marvin Wolfthal’s Lulu Fantasy, with score:
Review of Ghosts & Mirrors, from Robert Hugill for Planet Hugill. Pianist Richard Uttley sees the works on his new disc, Ghosts and Mirrors (on the Artists Recording Company label) as each being a reflection upon something. What the pieces also have in common, in addition to their 20th and 21st century origins, is a concern with the re-invention of […]

On Wednesday 15 October I’m launching my new CD, Ghosts & Mirrors, at The Forge in London. I will be joined onstage by Nat Urazmetova, who has created the artwork for the disc and will mix live visuals on the night, following our first performance together at St John’s Smith Square in the Occupy the […]
From the programme notes to Occupy the Pianos festival at St John’s Smith Square: Nat and I began working together on this project when she created the artwork for my forthcoming CD Ghosts & Mirrors. The pieces we’re presenting in this concert all appear on that disc, so this is a sort of live version […]
I recorded my new disc with Artists Recording Company last month. We were incredibly fortunate to be using the fabulous new Milton Court Concert Hall, and it lived up to expectations in every way. The sound of the piano and hall are gorgeous and it was a pleasure to record in such conditions. I’ve been producing the […]
One of the main things I’m working on at the moment is a disc for Artists Recording Company.

It was written […]
