Wanderer – a piano recital by Pascal Harris
Playing Bach, Mozart, Chopin, Liszt & Schubert’s ‘Wanderer Fantasy’

Brought to you by the Wanganui Music Society
Concert Chamber, War Memorial Centre

Pascal Harris was born in Dunedin, New Zealand in 1982 into an artistic family. He started the piano at the relatively late age of 11, but soon became immersed in music after discovering pieces by Bach and Mozart and other great composers. After growing up mainly in Wanganui, where he learnt piano from Sonja Wilson and music from Bruce Cash, he returned to Dunedin to study music and classics at Otago University.
He graduated with an Honours Degree ( 1st class) in Piano Performance in 2005 studying piano under Professor Terence Dennis. During his studies he won several significant New Zealand music prizes including the Simon Gibson Memorial Prize (2006), for outstanding Honours students.
In 2007, Pascal completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Piano Performance at the Royal College of Music, London, studying piano under Gordon Fergus-Thompson. He then moved to Tokyo supporting himself by teaching and regularly performing in concerts. During his time in Tokyo Pascal benefited from the advice of such pianists as Vladimir Ashkenazy and Jorg Demus. In 2013 he returned to New Zealand and has since been based in Dunedin where he is teaching and accompanying in addition to his concert schedule.
