Trained at the Royal Academy of Music, Murray has worked with many orchestras, opera and ballet companies and chamber groups.
The use of the accordion in classical music has increased dramtiacally in the last 50 years thanks largely to the introduction of the free-bass or classical accordion.
Murray learnt the classical accordion under Professor Owen Murray at the Royal Academy of Music, graduating in 1996. Working on a blend of transcriptions and new repertoire Murray has helped in the expansion of the accordion in this field of music.
His experience as a classical performer has lead to work in many varying roles from orchestral and chamber to solo work. Performances to date include with:
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Scottish Chamber Orchestra
