Leo Nicholson specialises in chamber music and song accompaniment. In 2016 he received the Accompanist Prize at the Maureen Lehane Vocal Awards, accompanying bass-baritone Samling Artist Sam Carl. Leo has a long-standing duo with flautist Rosanna Ter-Berg, and their critically acclaimed Purcell Room début (under the auspices of the Park Lane Group) in January 2012 led to performances at the Wigmore Hall and the Bridgewater Hall, and an album, Epigraphes, released in 2015.
Leo studied at the Royal Academy of Music in London and at Trinity Laban Conservatoire, where he continues to work as a staff accompanist. He regularly appears at British music societies, and also works as an orchestral pianist, and in theatre and opera. He also performs with the six-piano group Piano Circus.
