Biography

David Goode is Organist and Head of Keyboard at Eton College, where he presides over a unique collection of historic instruments and teaches some of the UK’s most talented young organists; he combines this with a concert career that takes him around the world.

He was a music scholar at Eton College and then organ scholar at King’s College, Cambridge from 1991-4, graduating with a first and the MPhil degree. While there he studied the organ with David Sanger and in Holland with Jacques van Oortmerssen. From 1996-2001 he was Sub-Organist at Christ Church, Oxford and as such toured in Europe, the US, Brazil and Japan and made several recordings. Having won the top prizes awarded at the 1997 St Alban’s Interpretation Competition, and the Recital Gold Medal at the 1998 Calgary Competition, he concentrated on a freelance career between 2001 and 2003. From 2003-2005, he combined a busy international career with the post of Organist-in-Residence at First Congregational Church, Los Angeles, home to the world’s largest church organ.

Recent years have seen a rare solo Proms recital, concerts around Europe, the US and Australia, and a fruitful partnership with the BBCNOW in several concerti. In 2009 he played the Art of Fugue at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, premiered a new work written for him by John Pickard and played Maxwell Davies’ Solstice of Light at the Proms and the City of London Festival. He has an established partnership with the trumpeter Alison Balsom, and will be performing with her in Passau, Germany in July 2011.
