Barry Douglas comes to The Apex ...

Barry Douglas has established a major career since winning the Gold Medal at the 1986 Tchaikovsky International Piano Competition in Moscow. As Artistic Director of Camerata Ireland and the Clandeboye Festival, he continues to celebrate his Irish heritage whilst also maintaining a busy international touring schedule.


Over the last two years, Barry has performed with the Halle Orchestra and London Symphony Orchestra, Endellion String Quartet and Borodin Quartet. He has toured in recital in the UK and USA, performed with orchestras across the globe from Canada to Europe to Russia and opened the St. Petersburg Philharmonic’s concert season.


Barry recently completed a recording of the full works for solo piano of Brahms, the six albums of which have received much critical praise. International Record Review wrote that “this is indeed Brahms playing of the utmost integrity and authority... this cycle looks set to become a benchmark version.” His current recording projects focus on the solo piano works of Schubert and Tchaikovsky. Barry is also exploring Irish folk music through his own arrangements, working with ancient melodies and pieces by contemporary song writers.


In 1999 Barry founded the chamber orchestra Camerata Ireland, to celebrate and nurture the very best young musicians from both Northern and the Republic of Ireland. In addition to striving for musical excellence, one of the orchestra’s aims is to further the peace process in Ireland by promoting dialogue and collaboration through its musical education programmes.


Barry received the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the 2002 New Year’s Honours List for services to music.


Barry Douglas plays at The Apex on Monday 24 September at 7.30pm. The concert programme features Tchaikovsky's The Seasons, Schubert's A Minor Sonata D537 and Schubert's A Major Sonata D664.
