Welcome to the website of William Whitehead, concert organist and accompanist. The following pages give some information about my activities, plus details of how to contact me.
‘King of Instruments’, or so Mozart said, but ‘King of Musical Instruments’ is the level that this organist strives for! Passionate about making the pipe organ a real and vibrant musical experience, William presents concerts, masterclasses and other events, all beamed towards making music come alive on this, the most mechanical of all instruments.
First-prize winner at the Odense International Organ Competition, Denmark, in 2004, William has established a reputation for engaging and inspiring playing. His disc, 'Dances of Life and Death', music by Duruflé and Alain, was awarded a Diapason Découverte in Diapason magazine and 5-star reviews elsewhere. He is now sought after as a recitalist, teacher, examiner and jury member.
