Dr. Anthony Hammond is a critically acclaimed English concert organist, composer and musicologist. His principal organ studies were with Roger Fisher and David Briggs in England, and with Dr. Naji Hakim in Paris. As a performing and recording artist in Europe and the USA he is known particularly for his specialism in French Romantic and 20th century organ music, and as an improviser.
He made his American solo debut in San Francisco in 2009 and enjoys a busy performing career in prestigious venues on both sides of the Atlantic. He has recorded a number of CDs both in England and France for English, German and American labels (Priory, Ifo Classics, Raven), has broadcast on radio in the USA and for the BBC, and is in increasing demand for his improvised accompaniments in concert to classic silent movies.
Kicking off the long-awaited campaign for the refurbishment of St. Peter’s 1939 Skinner organ, Anthony Hammond will play a Gala Concert celebrating the historic instrument.
The stellar concert program includes works by Sowerby, Bach, Liszt, and Vierne, showing off the vast colors and musical range of the organ.
