This concert, which follows two successful South African tours in 2019 and 2020, features a programme of music from the classical repertoire and the English and South African musical canons. Two major sonatas by Mozart and Brahms are contrasted with works by English composer Frederick Delius and piano works by South African composer Alexander Johnson.

Parry; and his solo performances have been frequently broadcast on BBC Radio 3, ABC Classic FM (Australia), RTÉ (Ireland), SABC (South Africa), Radio Suisse Romande (Switzerland), and in Canada, France, New Zealand and the USA. His recordings have attracted glowing critical acclaim from the international musical press, including BBC Music Magazine, Classica, Fanfare, Gramophone, MusicWeb International and The Strad.

He holds a strong commitment to performing South African music, and has recorded works by Andile Khumalo, Jeanne Zaidel-Rudolph, Carlo Mombelli, Conrad Asman, Hendrik Hofmeyr, Musa Nkuna, Alexander Johnson, and Merryl Neille. Recent projects include the African Bird album with Flautist Khanyisile Mthetwa which won two 2022 South African Music Awards (SAMAS) for best classical/instrumental album and best newcomer, and an album titled The Dusk of Day – a collection of African art songs from around the continent.
