     Simon Preston

Country: England
Birth: Aug 4, 1938 in Bournemouth, England

Preston studied organ with C.H. Trevor at the Royal Academy of Music from 1956 - 1958. He later became an organ scholar at King's College Cambridge. His debut was at Festival Hall in 1962 in Janacek's Glagolitic Mass. From 1962 - 1967, Preston was sub-organist at Westminster Abbey, then proceeded to initiate his solo concert career. At this same time he began building his reputation as a harpsichordist. In 1970, Preston was named organist and lecturer at Christ Church, Oxford, and since 1981 has been organist of Westminster Abbey.
Preston is known not only for his impeccable technique, but also for his imaginative use of color. This latter quality has made him a leading exponent of the music of Messiaen and Liszt. His repertory encompasses the entire literature from the Baroque on, and his recording of the Handel concertos is highly esteemed.
