A member of Glyndebourne Opera Festival’s music staff since 2012, and winner of the Das Lied and Kathleen Ferrier accompanist prizes, Matthew is a sought-after pianist and répétiteur.

His performances have taken him to major concert halls, festivals and opera houses across the UK and Europe. He has played with the London Philharmonic, Royal Philharmonic, BBC Philharmonic Orchestras, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and the Chamber Orchestra of Europe.

Recent highlights include the world premiere of songs by James Macmillan and Poulenc’s La Voix Humaine with Danielle De Niese, a disc of songs by Elizabeth Maconchy with Joanna Songi and performances of Janáček’s Diary of One who Disappeared in Budapest and across France. His fortepiano continuo for Glyndebourne’s recent Don Giovanni was described by the press as ‘exciting’, ‘imaginative’ and ‘wonderfully witty’ and his harpsichord playing for The Rake’s Progress as ‘absolutely scintillating’. Matthew is also a keen jazz pianist and composer.

Matthew read music at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, where he was organ scholar. He then studied piano accompaniment with Michael Dussek and Pascal Nemirovsky at the Royal Academy of Music. He was made an associate of the Royal Academy of Music in 2016, and was on their teaching staff as a vocal coach from 2015 – 2022.
