As It Comes Podcast: Life from a Musician’s Point of View

Episode 47: Charles Owen “That’s our duty and destiny”

April 27, 2021

Taking time out of his busy schedule of being a UK Ambassador for Steinway and Professor of Piano at Guildhall School of Music and Drama, concert pianist Charles Owen had a chat with me on the one-year anniversary of the UK lockdown. Charles reminisces about fond times performing at Fidelio café in the summer of 2020 as well as performing down in Cornwall for the St Endellion Festival and International Music Seminar at Prussia Cove before the mess of the pandemic; in addition to challenges that pianists and concert-goers face in the future. As another guest with a liking to 1000-piece puzzles, we talk about the parallels between that, literature, and music-making.
