Trevor Pinnock

The harpsichordist and conductor is one of the major figures in the British period-instrument revival. Today he is hailed for his pioneering zest, something that remains undimmed.

A tribute by Rachel Podger

During my time with The English Concert I was amazed by how easy it was for Trevor to see the big picture of a piece – his pacing of tempo relationships and contrast of character between movements in a work is stunning. This assurance inspired within me a confidence to look beyond the notes on the page. With Trevor I played my first Four Seasons, Brandenburgs, and other Vivaldi concertos like the Grosso Mogul in large festivals and halls in the Far East. Trevor is a kind man, strong in his convictions, with a twinkle in his eye and a wonderful zest for life.
