OUR ACCOMPANIST


Our accompanist is Robin Baggs.  Robin Baggs studied the organ with Garth Benson, Peter le Huray and Lionel Rogg (Geneva), and completed post-graduate studies in performance, palaeography and criticism at Trinity College Cambridge. In this country he has worked with ensembles such as The London Mozart Players and the English Chamber Orchestra, and he plays regularly for a number of Choirs and Choral Societies in the area. Recital tours have taken him to eleven European countries and he will soon be embarking on a tenth Austrian tour. He has also worked extensively as a writer and critic for ‘The Musical Times’ and several other music journals, specialising in Czech music and the organ repertoire. Until 2009, Robin was Organist and Director of Music at Westonbirt School in Gloucestershire, but after thirty five years there, he is now enjoying life as a freelance recitalist, teacher and accompanist.
