Award-winning concert pianist, conductor and vocal coach Brian Stanborough is an expert in opera, operetta, music theatre (including Gershwin, Cole Porter and Rodgers & Hammerstein), song and Lieder. As well as English, he is fluent in German, French and Italian, and experienced in coaching opera singers in these languages.

Throughout a long and illustrious career he has coached the very highest rank of opera singers - names such as Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo, Joan Sutherland, Kiri Te Kanawa, Leontyne Price, Grace Bumbry, Montserrat Caballe, Marilyn Horne and Martina Arroyo.

"With his flawless technique he he makes every note vibrate, revealing a great poetic sensibility... His music-making has the violent tenderness that attends every birth or re-birth. The imperious, velvety chords that he draws from the piano transfigure the music like the sun breaking through the clouds."
