Alex Wilson is a musician with a passion for the unusual, new and unexplored: a versatile pianist with interests ranging from cutting edge new music to fascinating repertoire by forgotten composers. Alex is a former British Contemporary Piano Competition finalist, Park Lane Group Young Artist and regular performer with BBC NOW and the London Sinfonietta.

Alex’s tour of music by the lost composers of World War One led to a debut solo CD – a recording of works by composer F.S.Kelly – released in June 2020. Alex collaborates regularly with musicians across the south-west and teaches piano at Colyton Grammar School.
