Discography

Born in Wales of Welsh and Latvian parentage, Albert was brought up in Zimbabwe. His father was a leading figure in African Education, and from an early age Albert was exposed to and inspired by African Music. As he grew up Classical Music lessons co-existed with playing in Township Bands. Apparently irreconcilable elements were a natural part of his musical life, and have shaped his uniquely personal approach to musical composition.

Albert Alan Owen was a prize winning student at The Royal Academy of Music, and for two years full-time , then periodically up to her death, a pupil of the legendary teacher Nadia Boulanger. He was also a successful piano student, and studied with Harold Craxton and Jacques Fevrier.
