"Mark Pringle is an exceptionally gifted pianist and composer, and a remarkable improviser" - John Taylor, 2015
Mark Pringle is a pianist and composer from the UK working in the fields of jazz and improvised music. He currently lives in Berlin. He is a Yamaha Jazz Scholar and Peter Whittingham Award winner, and has performed his own music at the Proms Late Series for BBC Radio 3, Manchester Jazz Festival, The Vortex, Southbank Centre and many more prominent venues across Europe.
Mark works as a leader and sideman in diverse artistic projects Europe-wide, notably his twelve-piece large ensemble A Moveable Feast, London Sinfonietta oboist Melinda Maxwell’s classical/improv group, a freewheeling duo with trumpeter Tom Syson, an improvised solo project, pan-European trio Nighthawks, and numerous collaborative settings internationally. He has also performed classical works, most notably Olivier Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time.
Mark owes a great deal to some extraordinary musicians and creative minds that he was fortunate to encounter during conservatoire studies in Berlin, Copenhagen, Paris, Amsterdam and Birmingham - John Taylor, Greg Cohen, Søren Kjærgaard and Harmen Fraanje to name just a few.
