• Phase three

    Having started the year with a visits to St Andrews University (Scotland) and the Eastman School of Music (USA) to give a a talk on Bach's Leipzig Collection, and with the end of another academic year now almost in sight, I'm preparing for performances in some of Europe's finest festivals this summer. I'm very pleased to be playing a very small part in the Three Choirs Festival's 300th year with a Bach masterclass in my home town of Hereford (and locally in festivals in Bromsgrove and Ludlow). 

    Further afield, I'm excited about the prospect of playing some of the finest historic instruments in Germany: including as part 300 year celebrations of the famous Silbermann organ at Freiberg Cathedral; the International series on the celebrated Hildebrandt organ in Naumburg; as part of the Merseburg Cathedral's 1000 year celebrations, two concerts on the beautiful Ladegast organ. I'm also performing on fine modern instruments: including as part of international series at the Stiftskirche Stuttgart and Magdeburg Cathedral in Germany, Haderslev Cathedral in Denmark, Tokyo Metropolitan Arts Theatre in Japan and a return visit to play three concerts on the lovely William Drake organ in the crypt St Paul's Cathedral in the autumn. As well as Bach programmes, I will be playing a programme entitled "Great Danes" that celebrates Carl Nielsen's anniversary this year. As part of Birmingham's 'Organfest' in September, I will be co-directing the Royal College of Organists Organ Forum with distinguished Italian organist and harpsichordist, Lorenzo Ghielmi; this year investigating the music of Nikolaus Bruhns in this the 350th anniversary of his birth.
