Kevin Allen

Kevin Allen’s instrumental works consist of a Sonata for Viola and Piano, Intermezzo for lute or clavichord, a Sonata for Oboe and Piano and a short piece for guitar. He describes himself as “a reasonable pianist and permanently struggling lutenist”. He says: “Composing is an intensely personal, largely hidden and all-too-rare activity, overshadowed and overwhelmed by involvement in public life, whether, as in my past career, as a British Council officer, or, more recently, as a local politician.”
