Biography

Scott Davie is known to audiences as both a soloist and chamber musician. He has given concerts throughout Australia, and his performances and recordings have been broadcast on radio and television. 

In 2012, Scott gave the first Australian performances of the original version of Rachmaninoff’s Fourth Piano Concerto (1926) to capacity audiences at the Sydney Opera House with Vladimir Ashkenazy and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. 

In 2005, Scott collaborated with Graeme Murphy and the Sydney Dance Company in their production of Grand, giving highly acclaimed performances throughout Australia. In 2007, the production made an extensive tour of the United States of America, and segments of the work were revived in Murphy with The Australian Ballet.

His first solo CD, Lilacs, was released by ABC Classics in 2002. A CD of the music from Grand was released on the Melba label in 2005, and Pictures from an Exhibition, featuring the First Piano Sonata of Rachmaninoff was released by ABC Classics in 2006.

More recently, songs and Lieder performed with Australian soprano Taryn Fiebig have appeared on the Toccata Classics label and broadcasts by ABC Classic FM, as have recordings of Australian music with clarinettist Jason Noble. A CD of Australian violin and piano music, with Asmira Woodward-Page, was re-released by ABC Classics in 2019.
