About Lunchtime Organ Concert Guest Recital: James McVinnie

Through his boundless approach to music making, his collaborations with a vast array of artists from many different walks of musical life, his innovative programming and captivating musicianship of the highest order, James McVinnie has carved out a unique career as an organist and keyboard player.

Steeped in the traditions of Anglican church music (having held organ playing positions at St Paul’s Cathedral and Westminster Abbey) he has since had major concerto and solo works written for him by Nico Muhly, Gabriella Smith, Tristan Perich, Bryce Dessner, Hildur Guðnadóttir, Darkstar, amongst many others. He directs the James McVinnie Ensemble, a collective of virtuoso keyboardists dedicated to exploring work often preoccupied with political themes by contemporary and emerging composers. He is a member of Icelandic collective and record label Bedroom Community, on which he has released three albums. The Grid (2018) is a studio album of music by Philip Glass using organ samples on Orange Mountain Music. All Night Chroma featuring music by Tom Jenkinson/Squarepusher, recorded at the organ of the Royal Festival Hall in London was released on Warp Records in 2019.
