Paul both varies and fuses different styles to suit the occasion. He plays Classical pieces by the likes of J.S. Bach, Domenico Scarlatti, Fernando Sor and Francisco Tarrega. Pieces by Spanish composers such as Isaac Albeniz are favourites to many and he also plays many pieces in the style of the increasingly popular Latin American music of Argentina and Brazil, such as the Tango, Samba and the Bossa Nova. These styles are often interwoven through Paul's improvisations and own works.
Jazz music is often worked into the repertoire. As Time Goes By, All the Things You Are and Autumn Leaves are among favourites for many. Contemporary popular music is often mixed in. He plays solo arrangements of popular songs such as Moondance, Tears in Heaven, Hallelujah and Songbird. If you have a special request please email Paul.
