Richard Kershaw was born in Leeds in 1946 and educated at the City of Norwich School and Balliol College Oxford where he read Music. He graduated in 1968 and went on to take a D. Phil with his thesis on The Solo Keyboard Works of J. N. Hummel. After a short spell of teaching at Aberdeen University he joined the music staff of Sherbourne School in Dorset, where he has remained ever since. In 1999 he changed to part-time teaching which enabled him to concentrate on composing. He plays cello and piano. Night Ride was written for his daughter-in-law Jacqueline, currently a brass teacher in Cornwall. See www.kershawmusic.net/richard

As the title suggests 'Jazz Sonata' combines features of both classical and jazz music. The first movement is 'Swing', the second movement bluesy and the third movement Latin - but all are set in more conventional classical forms, respectively Sonata form, Ternary and Rondo.

Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) Grade 6 Exam Piece until further notice

A brilliant concert piece for a relatively experienced horn player, and one that would make an ideal finale to any recital. A short, suspenseful slow introduction leads straight into the main movement, which is an exciting gallop for both players. The fast tempo aside the range is comfortable and there are no major technical problems for the soloist.  This work has been an Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) Grade 6 Exam Piece since 2013.
