Welcome to Secrets of Organ Playing Podcast 545!
Today's guest is Daniel Moult who is Head of Organ Studies at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and international concert artist, is “one of the finest organists of our time” (The Organ). Renowned for his virtuosic, intelligent and engaging performances, his musicianship has been praised as “exhilarating” (Gramophone), “dazzling” (The Organ), and “formidable” (Organists’ Review).
Daniel’s innovative approach to the promotion of organ music has seen him presenting and performing in the DVDs Virtuoso! Music for Organ, a film featuring some of the most demanding organ repertoire of the twentieth-century, and The Elusive English Organ, a journey through English organ music from Byrd to Wesley. He is currently filming The English Organ, a major DVD and CD boxset covering music and organs from Handelian times to the present day. He has made several CDs, including the first solo recording of the newly-restored organ of Arundel Cathedral, and one of Handel's organ concerti and other pieces on the Signum Classics’ releases, Handel at Vauxhall.
As a soloist, Daniel has performed in the UK, Europe, Asia and Australia. Upcoming appearances include major venues and festivals in the UK, as well as concerts celebrating Handel with the London Early Opera Orchestra, and concerti appearances in Germany. He has been Artist in Residence at Sydney Grammar School and is due to record in Australia and New Zealand in 2018/19.
Based in London, Daniel was born in Manchester and studied at Oxford University and Amsterdam Conservatorium. At Birmingham, he heads the highly-acclaimed organ department in a new £57 million building. He teaches and leads masterclasses, workshops and courses around the world. Daniel has published several editions, including the Easy Bach Album and the Easy Handel Album for Bärenreiter. He broadcasts frequently on BBC television and radio and has recorded for various record labels including Fugue State, Signum and Sony BMG.
Today with Daniel we are talking about what it takes to be an ambassador of an English organ. I was delighted to know that we have a common friend - James Flores from Australia.

Welcome to Secrets of Organ Playing Podcast #91!
Today's guest is organ builder Oliver Schulte from Germany, who is the owner of Schulte Orgelbau. He specializes in the development of all kinds of organ concepts and has over 30 years of experience in new construction and restoration.
In 1997-2000 Oliver apprenticed in his Dad's workshop and 2001 started working at Martin Vier organbuilding in black forest (restoring German early romantic organs).
In 2004 he continued his education by taking a masterclass in Ludwigsburg and in 2005 completing his MBA studies.
The most important organ for Oliver is surely the Binns-Schulte organ in the church of Heilig Kreuz, Bonn-Limperich. It was his first project as the owner of Orgelbau Schulte and by far the most important project because it was the first English rebuild they did. His company would not be what it is now without this instrument.
In this conversation, among many other things, Oliver talks about what does it take to restore old English organs.
Enjoy and share your comments below.
And don't forget to help spread the word about the SOP Podcast by sharing it with your organist friends.
