Hodges studied the piano with Robert Bottone at Winchester, and subsequently with Susan Bradshaw and Sulamita Aronovsky; he studied composition at school with Michael Finnissy, and at University of Cambridge with Robin Holloway and Alexander Goehr. He also attended masterclasses at Dartington by Morton Feldman (1986) and Robert Saxton (1988). He has not composed since the mid-1990s.
Many composers have written works for Hodges to perform, notably Elliott Carter (Dialogues for Piano and Orchestra, 2003), Salvatore Sciarrino, James Clarke, Michael Finnissy, Jeroen Speak and Konrad Boehmer.
Hodges has recorded music by many contemporary and recent composers. His first CD was of the complete piano works of Bill Hopkins, and he has also recorded music by John Adams, Michael Finnissy, Harrison Birtwistle, Beat Furrer, Justin Connolly, Brian Ferneyhough, Elliott Carter, Konrad Boehmer and many others.
Nicolas Hodges has been a member of Trio Accanto since 2013.
