Sophie Hutchings

Renowned Australian pianist and composer Sophie Hutchings plays her first-ever Irish show at Pavilion Theatre, as part of a major EU/UK tour for her recently released album, A World Outside on London label Mercury KX.

With two nominations for the Australian Music Prize and the National Live Music Awards’ top five live instrumentalists of the year, praise from MOJO, The Guardian, and the release of eight highly acclaimed albums including Echoes in the Valley reaching the impressive milestone of becoming the #1 classical album in the UK in 2021, Sophie Hutchings continues her incredible journey with her new album. Inspired by her transformative road trip through Australia’s Northern Territory, A World Outside captures the essence of the vast and mystical landscapes with its spacious and hypnotic beauty.

An avid surfer and deep lover of the outdoors, Hutchings draws inspiration from the beauty of the natural world and the expansive landscape of her native Australia. She’s known for compositions that sway from the disarmingly spare and elegant to the romantic and epic – all expressing a distinct, exquisite fragility and intimacy.
Sought after as a composer and pianist, Sophie has been involved with a number of films (most recently Baby Teeth and True Spirit), toured internationally through Japan and Europe, and opened for artists such as Ólafur Arnalds, Hauschka and Federico Albanese.
