Biography

Andrew Parrott (b. 10 March 1947) is a British conductor, perhaps best known for his pioneering historically informed performances of pre-classical music. He conducts a wide range of repertoire, including contemporary music. He conducted the premiere of Judith Weir’s A Night at the Chinese Opera (as well as its first recording). He has recorded new music by other modern British composers (including John Tavener), and by Vladimír Godár.

In 1973 he founded the Taverner Choir, Consort and Players, a period instrument ensemble based in London. He was music director of the London Mozart Players for several years until September 2006. Currently, Parrott is music director of the New York Collegium in New York City, New York.

Parrott has published major articles on Bach, Monteverdi and Purcell, is co-editor of the New Oxford Book of Carols and author of The Essential Bach Choir, which was informed by his work with Joshua Rifkin on one-voice-per-part performance of Bach’s vocal works.
