Matthew Schellhorn Piano Recital



A solo recital given on the Mansion House’s historic grand piano, in aid of The Sand House Charity. Interval refreshments included.

Doncaster-born Matthew Schellhorn studied in Manchester and Cambridge. He has a growing international career, which in recent seasons has seen recitals in Europe, Ireland, the Far East, and North America. He has given performances in major venues throughout the UK, including Wigmore Hall and the Purcell Room, and has performed live numerous times on BBC Radio 3. He has also been featured on Classic FM. Matthew makes a welcome return to Doncaster to support The Sand House Charity. The Sand House was a feature of Doncaster’s past well known to some of Matthew's ancestors who lived just a stone’s throw from it. We are very grateful for his support.

The Mansion House’s grand piano was manufactured in the late 19th century, which was also the heyday of Doncaster's unique Sand House. Matthew’s recital will include repertoire from the same era, including works by Liszt, Chopin and Scott Joplin. The full programme may be viewed at

Speaking about his choice of music for his recital in Doncaster’s historic Mansion House ballroom, Matthew said “I am so pleased to be returning to my native town to share an afternoon of beautiful music. The programme is based on pieces that were special to me as a child and teenager, and represents the wide range of interests and musical tastes that I encountered from my family and the local community. There will be something for everyone!”
