About Adrian


British pianist and composer Adrian Lord studied at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, and at Colchester Institute’s School of Music.   

During his time at Colchester Adrian studied composition with Alan Bullard and Christopher Ball.  His piano studies with Martin Hughes, and Robert Bell, led to him winning the Canon Jack award for Piano Performance.  

He has spent much of his life writing short piano pieces, and performing them in regular concerts around the United Kingdom.  In 2016 he released his debut album “Journey – Twelve Romances for Piano”, reflecting his inspirational journey as a composer which culminated in the recording at Crear, Western Scotland.  In March Adrian released his second album “Sky Blue Piano”, a collection of new uplifting pieces.

Adrian finds inspiration from visiting beautiful parts of the world, especially the Scottish Islands, and the English Lake District (where to date he has climbed 84 of the 214 Wainwright fells).
