Biography

Graham Barber is acclaimed worldwide for his intensely musical playing and complete technical mastery. He trained as a pianist at the University of East Anglia with Charles Spinks and David Parkhouse, and at the Royal Northern College of Music with Gordon Green and Clifton Helliwell. He was appointed the first organ scholar at Norwich Cathedral where his teacher was Brian Runnett. Later he studied with Nicolas Kynaston and Gillian Weir, and participated in classes with Lionel Rogg and Luigi Tagliavini. By the time he made the first of four solo appearances at the Royal Festival, London, he was already recognized for his highly-praised recordings on the Vista label.

Graham Barber has performed in major venues in Britain, Europe, the Far East, the States, and Australia. He has a wide range of repertoire and is equally at home on classical or romantic instruments. He has made numerous broadcasts on BBC Radio 3, repertoire ranging from the earliest known organ music, the Robertsbridge Codex, to the works of Bach’s favourite pupil, Johann Ludwig Krebs. Projects for the BBC have included a series of programmes made on early organs in Ostfriesland at Rysum, Uttum, Marienhafe and Norden. Graham Barber has also made a detailed study of nineteenth-century English music, with particular emphasis on the works of Henry Smart. He includes in his repertoire the major English works from the twentieth-century. Other specialist areas are the works of Sigfrid Karg-Elert and Max Reger.
