Acclaimed as a pianist of “amazing power and panache” (The Telegraph), Clare Hammond is recognised for the virtuosity and authority of her performances and has developed a “reputation for brilliantly imaginative concert programmes” (BBC Music Magazine, ‘Rising Star’). She won the Royal Philharmonic Society's 'Young Artist Award', in recognition of outstanding achievements, in 2016.

Highlights last year included a performance at the Royal Festival Hall with the Philharmonia and a series of concerts at the Belfast International Arts Festival, broadcast for BBC Radio 3’s Lunchtime Concerts series. Future projects include the premiere of Edwin Roxburgh’s Concerto for Piano and Winds with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and world premiere recordings of two concertos by Myslivecek with the Swedish Chamber Orchestra and conductor Nicholas McGegan for BIS.

Clare studied at Cambridge University and completed a doctorate with Ronan O’Hora at the GSMD and Professor Rhian Samuel at City University London.
