Robert Bottone studied the piano with Fanny Waterman and the organ with Donald Hunt, and also spent four years as a percussionist in the National Youth Orchestra.  After a period as Organ Scholar of Christ Church, Oxford, he became a schoolteacher, abandoning the organ in the process.  He has been Head of Piano at Winchester College since 1970, and is much in demand as an accompanist.  Besides broadcasting and recording he has appeared at the Wigmore Hall, the Queen Elizabeth Hall and the Purcell Room, and toured as far afield as Iceland and India.
