Richard Brasier enjoys a busy and far-reaching international career as a soloist, teacher, chamber
musician, accompanist, animateur, editor and recording artist. He is a graduate of the Royal
Academy of Music in London, where he studied with David Titterington and Nicolas Kynaston. Aided
by the Nicholas Danby Scholarship, he continued his studies with Johannes Geffert at the Hochschule
für Musik und Tanz, Köln.
As a concert organist, Richard has performed widely across the UK and Europe in recital series and
major international festivals on historic and modern instruments. He has a wide-ranging repertoire
covering all periods from the Middle Ages to Contemporary. Recent projects have included
performances of the complete organ music of J.S and C.P.E. Bach, and Robert Schumann’s works for
Pedalflügel on a pedal piano from the late 19th century.
Since 2014, Richard has been active as a teacher for the Royal College of Organists. Richard leads
masterclasses and study trips for students at home and abroad, and regularly teaches on residential
courses for organists of all ages and abilities. Elsewhere he has been invited to sit as a competition
jury member, and external examiner.
Richard has produced and published articles and videos on matters relating to the organ on various
platforms, and has edited several editions of organ repertoire. Since 2020, he has been organist for
the German-speaking communities of St. Marien mit St. Georg in London, where he plays and
maintains the historic 1886/1937 instrument by E.F. Walcker.
