Biography

The music of composer/pianist Craig Urquhart (pronounced “irk-hart “) is a continuing renewal of faith in beauty and the healing power of music.

The year 2008 has brought Urquhart further international recognition. On July 17 the Festival Euro Mediterraneo presented the composer/pianist in a sold out recital at the Mausoleo de Cecilia Metalla in Rome, Italy. This concert was followed up by another sold out recital in Stadthagen, Germany. In December the composer’s new work for chorus and orchestra The Moon, My Man and I was premiered by the Halle Orchestra and Chorus conducted by Sir Mark Elder, CBE with soloists Roderick Williams and Rebecca Bottone. This composition was the first movement of a secular Requiem based on the words of poet Jackie Kay, commissioned for World AIDS Day to benefit Mission Malawi. And through out this year Craig has been an on going featured artist on the globally syndicated Essence Radio Program.

After his most recent acclaimed recording of songs, Urquhart returned to the solo piano on his newest album SECRET SPACES. As a believer in the healing power of music and nature, this album expands this belief to the more personal emotional level. Each of the compositions reflects an aspect of these beliefs. The title cut Secret Spaces sets the stage for this reflective and contemplative album. The titles Contemplation and Meditation reflect the inner journeys of the heart. Reunion, Romance, Embrace and Forgiveness are all examples of acts of Love between people and also an individual’s soul.
