Colin Horsley (1920-2012)

From Appointment, 7:00 pm on 24 August 2015

“I was classed as the New Zealand brilliant young pianist – which I couldn’t be now at eighty-seven! Anyhow, so that was quite a thing; and people were very nice to anybody from New Zealand”

The Whanganui born pianist had a remarkable career in the UK including performing at almost every Proms between 1940 and 1964. Colin Horsley retired to the Isle of Man and from there talked with Peter Mechen in 2007 (RNZ)
