Biography

Internationally acclaimed performer, teacher and scholar. First organ scholar at Hull University, Douglas studied with Peter Hurford, Marie-Claire Alain and Gustav Leonhardt, and was the recipient of a year 2000 Churchill Fellowship to research the churches and organs relating to Buxtehude and the young Bach in North Germany and Denmark. He teaches in Clare College Cambridge and for 15 years was a visiting tutor at the Birmingham Conservatoire. A wide range of repertoire ranges from 17th century North German organ music, through major works such as Bach's Goldberg variations to piano and harp duo works of the late 18th and early 19th centuries with harpist Eleanor Turner. He has played widely in the UK, Europe and Australia, and programmes are always stimulating and thoughtful. He has many articles published on questions of performance practice and instruments, and has recorded CDs for Supraphon and Riverrun Records. He has a small collection of early keyboard instruments, both original and modern copies, and for 15 years to 1990 was also a professional maker of harpsichords, now sometimes restoring early English pianos. Students are encouraged to come to his house to experience the instruments, and to explore his library of books, music and recordings.
