Robin Davis is currently the solo repetiteur at the Dortmund opera house in Germany. He studied piano accompaniment with Michael Dussek and Tessa Nicholson at the RAM in London, subsequently graduating with a DipRAM and staying a further year as Meaker Fellow. During his time there, he won the 2009 Kathleen Ferrier accompanists award and, together with soprano Angela Bic, first prize in the 2007 Euriade Song-Duo competition in Holland.
Along with concerts in the Wigmore Hall, the Purcell Room, Fairfield Hall, Kings Place, St. John’s Smith Square and St. Martin-in-the-Fields, he has also given recitals in the Oxford Lieder, Windsor, Leeds, Two Moors and Bermuda Festivals. He has performed on a number of occasions as a soloist with the EMG and Dortmund orchestras and worked closely with Trevor Pinnock, Donald Maxwell and William Bennett. Recent recordings have included CDs for the RAM and with flautist Denis Bouriakov.
In 2010, Robin will take over as piano accompaniment tutor at ISSMUS. Now regularly the accompanist for William Bennett’s flute course, he was also pianist at the 2009 Solti Te Kanawa opera course and taught briefly at the National Opera Studio before moving to Germany.
Many moons ago, he was organ scholar at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge, where he was twice awarded the Alkan Piano Scholarship and finished with a first class Mathematics degree. The most exotic concert destinations in 2009 were Korea and Bermuda!
