The Australian pianist, Colin Noble, studied with Isobel Grigor during school years, and then with two legendary pianists: Pamela Page, and Larry Sitsky. He holds Honours and Masters Degrees in Performance.
Colin Noble's concert repertoire has included the complete Messiaen’s Vingt Regard sur l'enfant Jesus ("a tour de force"), Sergei Rachmaninov's epic 1st Piano Sonata ("formidable"), and the J.S. Bach Goldberg Variations (BWV 988) ("an oasis of calm"). He has premiered new works by both established and emerging composers. He has performed in many Australian centres as soloist, recitalist, chamber musician (most often with his brother Alistair as an acclaimed piano duo), and accompanist, and has given many national radio broadcasts for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
Colin Noble has released a CD of rarely heard virtuoso works by Constant Lambert, Alberto Ginastera and others, entitled “Sharagan”. A studio version of Goldberg Variations (BWV 988) recorded in 2010 was released on Centaur Records, USA. This release is followed with an all-Debussy CD which is in post-production, and due for release in 2012.
