St Peter’s College Music Finalist Alfred Fardell will perform Schubert’s Piano Sonata in A Major (D.959) at the inaugural Davison Young Musician Foundation award recital at New College on 7 June 2024.

A finalist reading music at St Peter’s, Alfred is the first student to be recognised with the Davison Young Musician Foundation Recital Award. He performs regularly as a solo pianist and chamber musician in Oxford and London. He has appeared at venues including St John's Smith Square, Winchester Cathedral and the Holywell Music Room.

Alfred started his musical training as a chorister at Westminster Cathedral, before winning a music scholarship to study at Winchester College. He currently studies the piano with Anna Tilbrook and will take up a scholarship on the Ensemble Piano course at the Royal Academy of Music in September 2024. 

The Davison Young Musicians Award was established in March 2021 by Tom and Peter Davison, to provide opportunity for aspiring young musicians to showcase their talent and win an award to assist them with their studies in music. New College has collaborated with the DYMF to provide a Recital Awards to students studying at the University of Oxford. Auditions take place twice a year, and students are awarded a monetary award and the opportunity to perform a recital at the New Space. 

St Peter’s warmly congratulates Alfred for this recognition of his achievements.
