David Goodenough is Director of Music at Fettes College, Edinburgh. Alongside the day-job that he loves, he is also very much in demand as an organist and accompanist. He received his early musical education at Hutton Grammar School, near Preston, Lancashire before going to the Guildhall School of Music in London to study the organ. Now, some twenty-five years later, and having fulfilled a number of significant Cathedral and Parish Church posts along the way, he is an established international recitalist who has played on four continents to wide critical acclaim. Recent reviews of his concerts in New York and Hong Kong have said “Goodenough is an accomplished technician and a wonderfully skilled improviser”, “You would be well-rewarded by getting to know both the performer and the repertoire on the programme this evening”, “David Goodenough’s playing, particularly of the music of J S Bach, took the delivery of this music to another level completely.” He has given recitals in many of the UK’s Cathedrals and Greater Parish Churches and he makes annual visits to fulfil engagements in the United States and Asia. In April this year, he was thrilled to be able to give a recital on the organ of the world's largest cathedral, St. John the Divine in New York City and, in October, David will travel once again to Asia to fulfil playing and teaching commitments in Hong Kong. David is well known as an improviser; he has taught improvisation for the IAO Congress and for the St. Andrews Organ Summer School. Most of his recitals include improvisations on material submitted by the audience and, on a number of occasions, he has given complete recitals of improvised material. David is a regular fixture as a performer in the Edinburgh Fringe; this year, he has performed seven solo organ recitals alongside a number of accompanimental roles, and he was delighted to be invited to accompany the National Youth Choir of Scotland in its Requiem Concerts at St. Giles’ Cathedral in August. David will also accompany NYCoS in its concerts during the tour of Central Europe in 2103.
