|Originally from Lincolnshire but now based in Oxford, Joseph Briggs-Ritchie
completed his music degree at the University of Hull where he studied
composition with Professor Alastair Borthwick and piano with Irina
Glushenkova, herself a former student of Russian concert pianist
Mikhail Pletnev. His music is influenced by a range of composers,
from Bach and Brahms to Scriabin and Philip Glass and also by the
modal qualities and melodic contours of folk and world music. Aside
from piano he also plays harp and accordion with his band.
