Described as “one of the most consummate musicians I have seen on stage” (Radio NZ), Liam Wooding is one of New Zealand’s leading emerging pianists. He was a prize winner in the 2015 National Concerto Competition, performing with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra and has since performed as a soloist with the Auckland Chamber Orchestra, Wellington Chamber Orchestra, and on several occasions with Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra.

A graduate of the Australian National Academy of Music, Liam studied with Timothy Young, supported by a Creative New Zealand scholarship. On leaving ANAM, he received the Volunteers Prize for an Outstanding ANAM Citizen.

In addition to this recital tour presented by Chamber Music New Zealand, recent and upcoming appearances include the Auckland Arts Festival, Wakatipu Music Festival, Melbourne Recital Centre, University of Western Australia, University of Adelaide, and Flinders University. Last year, Liam was an artist in residence at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity in Canada.

His first commercial recording, Play Pen, was released on the Atoll label in 2019 and spent several weeks at the top of the Radio New Zealand classical music charts. Upcoming recording for Rattle records include the complete Cabaret Songs by William Bolcom, and Reflections and Connections—this current recital programme.

Liam is based at the University of Waikato where he is a doctoral candidate researching New Zealand piano music. In addition to his work as a performer and researcher, he is a committed advocate for community music-making and is a board member of Orchestras Central.
