Raymond Banning was Professor of Piano at Trinity College of Music, as well as being a concert pianist. He died on 2 December 2012 at the age of 60 having suffered from a rare and rapidly-progressing form of young-onset dementia. On 2 December 2015, the third anniversary of Raymond's death, his widow Lorraine Womack-Banning, who is also a pianist, will be giving a concert at the 1901 Arts Club, 7 Exton Street, London, SE1 8UE. The programme includes the world premiere of S G Potts’s The Raymond Variations for Piano (set 1): Variations on the Andantino Themes from the Raymond Overture by Ambroise Thomas. The concert also includes music by Granados, Bizet and Debussy.
