Reg Pycroft – UK
“May I again say how absolutely delighted my daughter and I were with the music on Saturday at the Savoy in London – you were simply wonderful. You made a major contribution to making the wedding reception what it was, and I am only sorry that I am not having another party next week so that you could play again for us! Thank you again Christopher for an outstanding job.”

Mark & Amey Davies – UK
“Christopher played at the ceremony on our wedding day. He was nothing short of exceptional in every aspect and wouldn’t think twice about booking him again. If there was any other choice higher than exceptional then he would have been given it. Many, many thanks.”

Adele Logan – UK
“Christopher played at our wedding ceremony, the service and quality of music we received was exceptional and led many guests to comment on how beautiful the music was. Christopher was excellent value for money, especially when compared to some of the other prices and services offered by less established musicians.”

Pamela Kenney – UK
“Christopher played wonderfully for the wedding at Moxhull Hall. The pieces he chose to play were perfect and they helped create a happy, relaxed and warm atmosphere during the wedding breakfast. (My husband was quite nervous before his speech and Christopher helped to keep him calm with his piano playing.  So many people commented on how well Christopher played and how he added to the atmosphere in the marquee. We were delighted with his performance and will recommend him without hesitation.”

Alan Smith – UK
“Christopher played during my formal lunch and afternoon tea at Nuthurst Grange to celebrate my special birthday, and I have to say that I was delighted with the outcome. He is very talented, as well as being a nice person, and his choice of music was faultless.”

Yvonne Chachou – UK
“Christopher played for us during the ceremony and the wedding breakfast at Ardencote Manor Hotel. His work was fantastic, he played exactly what we’d requested and the guests were equally impressed. We’d seen Christopher play at a friends wedding reception and knew we’d not be disappointed. He really was a major part of our big day and truly made it extremely personal and special. We would highly recommend Christopher to anyone looking for a touch of class.”

Deborah White – UK
“Christopher played at our daughter’s wedding reception at Dunchurch Park Hotel and Conference Center, Nr Rugby, at a very reasonable and competetive rate. He was extremely professional and efficient throughout the whole process of the booking itself – but more importantly, he was brilliant on the day itself! So many people commented on what a great job he did – and how he added an extra special something to the event. One of the best things for us, though, was being able to trust him to judge what was needed musically on the day – and to leave it to him to ‘gauge’ his audience, adjusting the music to suit. We would recommend him 100%+, in every respect – and as people who set very high standards with matching expectations and who ‘tell it how it is’, we can say, in all honesty, that we cannot fault him in any way.”

Harold Hill – UK
“A huge thank you for the superb evening’s entertainment and pleasure you provided for us on your digital piano at Stourport Manor. Everyone was mesmerised watching your fingers just glide over the keys to produce some of the most beautiful music which was a joy to listen to. Your repertoire of music was just right for us that evening. On a personal note, it was a privilege to have met you, as you are clearly a very talented and gifted pianist, and yet at the same time you are a very modest and unassuming person. Certainly we shall all be looking out for the name of Christopher Langdown.”

Paul Shotan – UK
“An unmentioned aspect of Chris’s qualities is his total lack of ego despite his immense talent and professional success at such a young age. I have had the great pleasure of working with him as his web designer and a more pleasant, polite and humble man you could not wish to meet. He is appreciative, open to ideas and ready to accept advice. He has the old fashioned and in these days, rare demeanour of a true gentleman.” artworks-unlimited.co.uk

Jenny Barrie – UK
“Christopher did a piano master class and then a piano recital for the Friends of the Music of Holy Trinity Church in Stratford-upon-Avon at the end of January 2011. He worked with five young students from local schools in the morning and was not only immensely helpful and encouraging, but gave them very useful ideas about the interpretation and performance of their pieces. In the late afternoon, he came back and performed a brilliant concert programme to a widely appreciative audience.”

Lynda Littlewood – UK
“Chris played at my Mum’s funeral. His playing was superb, and totally appropriate for the event. A celebration of Mum’s long life. The diversity of the tunes he played was exceptional. It was a lovely finishing to the event. He did my Mum proud and she would have loved it. Thank you.”

Donna Crompton – UK
“Christopher played a Yamaha grand piano delightfully on September 4th during our afternoon drinks reception and wedding breakfast at Moddershall Oaks. This really was truly special. He played superbly and the fusion of classical and contemporary music worked exceptionally well. He was both professional and friendly, helpful and very efficient. Both Mark And I absolutely recommend him.”

Elaine Dearman – UK
“I booked Chris for my birthday party at Weston Park. I couldn’t have been more delighted with the service. Chris was helpful, personable and extremely talented. We discussed music in advance and he pitched it perfectly, playing exactly the right mix. Would whole-heartedly recommend.”

Mike Foster – UK
“Chris played at a birthday celebration for my wife – arrived on time and played beautifully… Played the music with feeling rather than just playing the notes. He was extremely professional but also very friendly and approachable. Would highly recommend and would book again without hesitation.”

Katy Daniels – UK
“Just wonderful! From the sample CD, to organizing piano hire and parking. Incredibly organized (ideal for stressed brides) and was playing when guests arrived. Smooth transitions between welcome drinks and moving to the dining room. Not only that but continued playing when dinner ran over. Received countless comments on the quality of the music. We could not recommend more highly. Thank you so much!”

Barbara Lees – UK
“Chris has played for us on three occasions now. He has always given us a very professional performance and certainly enhanced our events. He deserves a 5+ rating, nothing less. Both Colin and I hope there will be another time when we have the pleasure of his company.”

Charlotte Macleod – UK
I’d just like to say a very big thank you to Chris for playing at our wedding at Swinfen Hall. Everyone commented about how nice it was to have actual piano music playing in the background rather than just CD music! The piece he played when I entered the room was lovely, just what I wanted. In fact the whole performance, from the reception drinks to the wedding breakfast was fantastic! In terms of overall service, value for money, helpfulness etc definitely 5/5, no question about it. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone.

Musical Opinion – UK
“Christopher Langdown’s programme at Wigmore Hall was certainly a demanding one, but a challenge to which he rose admirably. With such undoubted musicality and total pianistic technique at his disposal, needless to say, the performance was thoroughly convincing.”

International Record Review – UK
“Christopher Langdown has a lovely tone, smooth legato and a technique equal to the pianistic challenges in this programme. A really good pianist.”

Fanfare Music Magazine – USA
“Langdown demonstrates a technical control and a flair that is second to none. An accomplished and polished artist, strongly recommended.”

American Record Guide – USA
“Very impressive. A mind that considers every detail yet carefully avoids any feeling of the ordinary or academic.”
