Performance

Each one of Daniel’s solo concert programmes is specifically tailor-made, taking into account fully the nature of the promotion, audience expectations and the organ itself. Daniel chooses his programme from a wide repertoire stretching from mediaeval dances to avant garde works. He believes passionately in promoting the organ as a vehicle for quality, mainstream classical repertoire, as well as exploring more alternative repertoire on certain, appropriate occasions.

Daniel’s concert work takes him to many venues throughout the UK and Europe, as well as recent and upcoming work in Australia, Singapore and New Zealand.
