British pianist Simon Mulligan is, according to the Times of London ‘the most abundantly gifted of pianists.’ Pulitzer prizewinning composer Paul Moravec calls him ‘a pianist with complete mastery of the instrument’; while Herbie Hancock says ‘You have a phenomenal touch, man!’
In addition to his extensive discography and vast repertoire, Mulligan’s solo work gains praise from critics and audiences alike, and his collaborations include highly acclaimed performances and recordings with Joshua Bell, Lynn Harrell, Leonard Slatkin, and the late Yehudi Menuhin. He has performed all over the world, most notably at Carnegie Hall in New York, the Wigmore Hall and Royal Albert Hall in London, and Suntory Hall in Tokyo. His work can also be heard on the soundtrack for the Steven Spielberg film Band of Brothers and he continues to lead his own Jazz Quartet, which he started when he was thirteen years old.
His eclectic work has led to profiles in Downbeat, JazzTimes, BBC Music, Classic fM, and Gramophone magazines, among others. www.SimonMulligan.com
