Singapore Symphony Orchestra

Prepare to be astounded by the esteemed British virtuoso organist, Thomas Trotter, in an evening recital of organ greats. A myriad of organ colours from Bach to Ginastera gives way to a celebration of familiar and famous British tunes, including the glittering magnificence of Holst’s Jupiter and the regal grandeur of Elgar’s Land of Hope and Glory.

Thomas Trotter is one of Britain’s most widely admired musicians. The excellence of his musicianship is reflected internationally in his musical partnerships. He performs as soloist with, amongst many others, the conductors Sir Simon Rattle, Bernard Haitink, Riccardo Chailly and Sir Charles Mackerras. He has performed in Berlin’s Philharmonie, the Gewandhaus in Leipzig, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Musikverein and the Konzerthaus in Vienna and London’s Royal Festival Hall. He has played inaugural concerts in places such as Princeton University Chapel USA, Auckland Town Hall in New Zealand, the Royal Albert Hall London, and Moscow's International Performing Arts Centre. He won the Royal Philharmonic Society award for Best Instrumentalist in 2002, and in 2012 he was named International Performer of the Year by the New York Chapter of the American Guild of Organists. In 2016 he was awarded the Gold Medal of the Royal College of Organists for his achievements in organ playing.
