Liddle David - Organ

Biography of Liddle David:

David Liddle, born in London, was educated at Worcester College for the Blind and began to study the organ at the age of thirteen. He was the youngest English pupil of the late Andre Marchal in Paris. He read music at St John's College, Cambridge, and was Assistant Organ Scholar at King's College. He gained his FRCO in 1985 winning the prestigious Limpus Prize, and in 1986 the Worshipful Company of Musicians awarded him the WT Best Memorial Scholarship. A popular guest artist, David has performed at many major venues throughout the UK and overseas. He has twice appeared at the Royal Albert Hall where he played to HRH the Duchess of Kent; one of his two recitals at the Royal Festival Hall was part of the 1987 Duruflé/Langlais series. David is regularly heard on both local and national radio, and has performed at many festivals in this country, including the Bath International Festival, the Three Choirs Festival, the Cheltenham International Festival of Music and Drama and the Northern Cathedrals Festival. His performances with orchestra include the Harwood Organ Concerto and the Saint-Saens Third Symphony. David has a wide repertoire: his playing of Widor and other French romantic masters is much influenced by his studies with Marchal, Madame Duruflé and Daniel Roth. In 1990 Liddle had the distinction of giving the first recital on the partly restored Willis organ at the Alexandra Palace, the first time that this famous instrument had been heard in public for fifty years. He was the first to broadcast on the organ and from 1991 to 1993 arranged a hugely popular series of Sunday afternoon Organ Proms with guest players. He was Resident Organist at Alexandra Palace in 1992-3. David Liddle makes frequent visits to North America where his tours always include return invitations. As both recitalist and lecturer he is a regular visitor to Yale and other American Universities. In 1988 his New York debut included the first performance of his Toccata (Opus 3). Other premieres include the English Organ Mass at King's College Cambridge (1991) and his Chorale for Candlemas (Opus 11) at Saint-Sulpice, Paris. Novello publishes his Three Short Pieces (Opus 1) and his Two Ballades (Opus 2) and Randall M. Egan, Minneapolis, his English Organ Mass (Opus 6). The Two Ballades are included in a recording made at Trenton Cathedral, New Jersey, (CD DTR 8706). His recording of organ music by Hollins on Priory label (PRCD 398) received universal acclaim.
