Gabriel Jones


I am a Brighton-born pianist and musicologist, currently undertaking a practice-led PhD in the performance practice of Stockhausen’s Klavierstücke. My holistic methodoloy brings together analysis of recorded tradition, score analysis, new and archival performer testimony and my own pianistic insights to inform new ways of listening and performing these works. The project will culminate in a series of experimental studio recordings of Klavierstücke I, VII and X, offering a range of alternatives to the established peformance traditions surveyed in the thesis.

I gained my BMus in piano performnace form Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and my MMus in Musicology from King’s College London. Before moving to Leeds in September 2018, I worked as a piano teacher and music lecturer at KM Conservatory of Music and Technology in Chennai, India.
