Christopher Bundhun

Since graduating with Distinction from The Royal Academy of Music, London (Postgraduate Diploma in Performance), Christopher Bundhun has performed widely as a soloist and ensemble player, on land and at sea.

Awarded an Entrance Scholarship on admission to RAM, Christopher also holds a Joint Honours degree in French & Philosophy from The University of Nottingham, and is currently conducting independent research on the relation between Language and Music.

Notable concert appearances include Union Chapel, Islington, and a recital supporting Alirio Díaz in Conegliano, Italy.

While at the Royal Academy, Christopher studied with Timothy Walker, also attending classes with Michael Lewin, John Mills, and a wealth of visiting performers and composers. He had previously studied privately with Carlos Bonell.

In collaboration with tenor Greg Tassell, Christopher performed the world premiere of two “lost” song settings by Sir Richard Rodney Bennett (1936–2012), as well as the UK premiere of three folk­song arrangements by South African guitarist/composer Dietrich Wagner (1937–2007).

Alongside concerts, teaching and academic research, Christopher Bundhun is active as a session musician, for instance, recording for the 2014 Norman Gregory film, ‘A Reason to Leave’ (scored by Paul Fincham), in which he may be heard accompanying the renowned trumpeter Mike Lovatt.
