John Alley was Principal Keyboard Player of the London Symphony Orchestra for 25 years, as well as performing and recording with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, London Sinfonietta, English Chamber Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and many others.


John has worked closely with renowned maestros including Boulez, Bernstein, Solti, Mehta, Haitink, Masur, Berio, Lutoslawski, Gergiev, Colin Davis and many others, and features on many important recordings. He has performed in hundreds of BBC Proms and played on dozens of major film soundtracks – not least Harry Potter and Star Wars.


With SENZA SOLO, John now brings his legendary skills to recording accompaniment backing tracks for all instruments. John will collaborate with you to produce tracks for your recital, audition (including excerpts) or diploma exam, both for practice and - while musical life is restricted - for online socially-distanced performance.

SENZA SOLO gives you the opportunity to work remotely with one of the world's best orchestral pianists and accompanists in your own studio.
