Part of the Hattori Foundation Rush Hour recital series. Oliver Wass (current Hattori Foundation senior award winner) is in his second year of a Masters Degree at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, for which he was awarded a full scholarship to study with Imogen Barford.
In May 2016, he became the first harpist ever to win the Guildhall Gold Medal, the Guildhall’s most prestigious prize. Previous winners of the competition include Jacqueline du Pré, Bryn Terfel and Tasmin Little.
He also made his Wigmore Hall debut in 2016, where he was praised for his “tremendous dynamism” and "remarkable range of timbres and warmth of the tone” (Seen and Heard International).
