Introduction

Trevor Pinnock pioneered performance on historical instruments with his orchestra, The English Concert, which he founded in 1972. Since 2003 he has divided his time between conducting, solo, chamber music and educational projects.
He tours regularly with Maria João Pires and the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen and with Emmanuel Pahud and Kammerakademie Potsdam. This season he returns to the Koninklijk Concertgebouworkest Amsterdam, Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie and Kammerorchester Basel and works with the Orchestre National de France. As Principal Guest Conductor of the RAM Concert Orchestra he visits Japan to lead them in combined concerts with Tokyo Geidai, University of the Arts Orchestra. His other projects include solo harpsichord recitals and concerts with Matthew Truscott, Sophie Gent and Jonathan Manson.
Recent recordings include two solo recordings, Louis Couperin harpsichord works and a recital ‘Journey – 200 years of harpsichord music’; CPE Bach Flute Concertos with Emmanuel Pahud and the Kammerakademie Potsdam; Mozart’s Gran Partita for winds and Haydn Notturno with the Royal Academy of Music Soloists.
In 1992 he was awarded the honour of CBE and in 1998 the order of Officier des Arts et des Lettres.
