Robin Green enjoys a busy career as a soloist, chamber musician and conductor. Robin’s first CD, Dialog mit Mozart with the Austrian violinist Daniel Auner, released on the Gramola label, was Editor’s Choice in the December 2014 issue of the Strad Magazine.

His festival appearances have included the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, the Interlaken Classics Festival, Davos Young Artists Festival, the International Musicians Seminar Open Chamber Festival at Prussia Cove, the Pharos Trust, Festival de Radio France et Montpellier and Le Jardin Musicaux Festival. Robin was the artist in residence at the Vale of Glamorgan festival, that culminated in a performance of The People United Will Never Be Defeated by Rzewski. The Wales Arts Review wrote, ”Green rose wonderfully to the challenge, demonstrating a maturity of vision which belied his years and entirely merited the standing ovation he received.“ As a concerto soloist, Robin directed a performance of Poulenc´s Aubade from the piano with the European Union Youth Orchestra. Other concerto highlights include the Martinu Double Concerto with Sinfonia Cymru and Camerata Nordica at the Small Nations Big Sounds Festival. Together with the pianist Antoine Françoise, Robin is part of the Françoise-Green piano duo.
