World renowned organist to play in Manchester

"One of the finest organists of our time" will be performing at the Church of the Holy Name in Manchester this Wednesday (9 July). That was how The Organ Magazine described Daniel Moult who will be giving the second recital in the Holy Name's 2014 organ series.

Daniel Moult was born in 1973 and was organist and assistant director of music at Coventry Cathedral from 1995 to 2002. He has performed concerts throughout the UK, as well as in Europe and the Far East, and has been a soloist with orchestras such as  the Czech National Symphony Orchestra and the English String Orchestra. He works frequently as an accompanist for choirs such as the  Millennium Youth Choir and the choir of St Peter's Church, Eaton Square. In 2010 he toured Switzerland and France with the Kammerorchester Basel as the soloist in Handel’s F Major Organ Concerto, Opus 4. He has just returned from Sydney where he performed the Poulenc Organ Concerto.

Daniel and the organist at the Holy Name, Simon Leach are both former pupils of Gordon Stewart who opened the series with a truly fantastic recital. Daniel will perform pieces by Bach, Saint Saens, Reubke, Messiaen and finish with the exhilarating Marcel Dupre Prelude and Fugue in B minor. "Daniel's programme promises to be virtuosic, intelligent and engaging," says Simon. "A prolific performer, editor and performing artist, this is a recital not to be missed."
