Martino Tirimo was born into a musical family in Cyprus and began piano and violin lessons with his father, a conductor and violinist. He gave his first concert at the age of six and when only twelve he conducted seven performances of Verdi’s La Traviata, including soloists from La Scala, Milan. He has appeared with many of the world’s leading orchestras, including all the major British orchestras and those in Berlin, Cleveland, Dresden, Leipzig, Munich, Prague, Vienna and other centres, with conductors including Barbirolli, Boult, Pritchard, Kurt Sanderling, Masur, Norrington and Rattle.

Our piano, a fine 2015 Hamburg Steinway Model B Grand, chosen for us by Ulrich Gerhartz, Steinway’s Head of Artist & Concert Services, is maintained by Steinways and tuned by them immediately before each performance.
After the concert we offer a delicious buffet tea of freshly-made sandwiches, savouries, homemade cakes and chocolate biscuits, with a choice of a glass of excellent wine, tea, coffee or juice. The artists usually attend the tea and you can meet them. Tea tickets are sold on the door. They are £10 (standard), £5 for students and schoolchildren. We can cater for up to 70.
