"Tom Hicks is an excellent pianist. He has won the RNCM Gold Medal Competition and was also one of the winners of the Concerto Competition with his performance of Brahms Piano Concerto No.1. The depth and maturity in the interpretation of this concerto was exceptional. I can highly recommend Tom."

Michelle Castelletti (Artistic Director, Royal Northern College of Music)
