"Music may evoke all kinds of sentiments and emotions: joy, sadness, nostalgia, passion but these words are inadequate generalities that cannot do any justice to the nuances that music expresses and language simply cannot. This music is a prelude to life, an invitation to allow archetypal messages to enter your world and flood your whole being.
Phil's performances combine engaging presentation with powerful and passionate musicality. His mission is to generate a level of excitement about the piano and its expressive possibilities that has not been known since the nineteenth century when it was a relatively new invention.
The combination of Phil's virtuoso technique and his fresh and natural way of playing brings energy and excitement to both old and new music in a way that challenges stereotyped preconceptions about musical genres."http://www.stjohnswaterloo.co.uk/content/events/concerts.php
