Christine Stevenson enjoys a distinguished career as a piano recitalist and concerto soloist throughout the UK and abroad. Her concerts continually draw critical acclaim for her virtuosity, musicianship, and the engaging rapport she establishes with audiences of all ages. She is an Artistic Director/Tutor at the annual Summer School for Pianists at Stowe in Buckinghamshire where she gives masterclasses [visit www.pianosummerschool.co.uk for details] and is frequently invited to give masterclasses at the Pianissimi Piano Course in Suffolk. She is on the staff of the Junior Department of the Royal College of Music in London and writes about piano music at www.notesfromapianist.wordpress.com.

Recent engagements have included chamber music by Clara Schumann and Vaughan Williams, works for piano duet and for two pianos including Holst’s ‘The Planets’, and a performance of award-wining composer Thomas Hewitt Jones’ work, ‘Incarnation’. In 2023, celebrating Rachmaninoff’s 150th birthday, Christine’s concerts featured Rachmaninoff’s music, and she researched and presented ‘Rachmaninoff’s Revolutions’– an overview of Rachmaninoff’s career, featuring not only the political revolutions that shaped his life, but charting the revolution of recorded sound which enabled the world to share the legacy of his recordings.  Her current concerts and research explore both the patriotism of Chopin and the significance of his music to the Polish nation, as well as Liszt’s Pilgrimages - musical, geographical, national and spiritual.

Christine's recordings include a recording of Liszt's Années de Pèlerinage - II - Italie released on CD and iTunes in the year of Liszt's bicentenary, which received excellent reviews. Born in Melbourne, Christine graduated from the Victorian College of the Arts with distinction, being twice awarded the Gaitskell prize for the most outstanding student. She studied with pupils of Cortot, of Nadia Boulanger and of Michelangeli, and with the celebrated English pianist, Ronald Smith, also participating in masterclasses given by Sergei Dorensky, Aldo Ciccolini and Vlado Perlemuter. @notesfromapiano
