Welcome to the website of Richard Brasier. These pages offer an introduction to his work as a concert organist, teacher, chamber musician, accompanist and animateur. A graduate of the Royal Academy of Music in London, and the Hochschule Hochschule für Musik und Tanz, Köln, Richard has been described as 'one of Europe's finest young organists' (Rheinische Post).

 

 

"Richard Brasier offers flawless technique, crystal clear performances and unique, but informed interpretations..." Rundschau Online

 

"....in Ludwig van Beethoven's Adagio in F for Musical Clock, Brasier focused on the beauty of the moment, rather than the internalized virtuosic details..." General Anzeiger, Bonn

 

"The second recital of the day came from Richard Brasier, who opened with a remarkably convincing account of the first of Robert Schumann's Fugues on the name BACH - indeed so convincing was this that one wishes Schumann had essayed a major solo organ work..." The Organ

 

"British organist Richard Brasier gave a fantastic recital....He showed stupendous technique, very good articulation and phrasing, especially in Bach, and beautiful agogic...the audience was enthusiastic." Braunschweiger Zeitung

 

"The late romantic Organ Concerto no.2 in g minor by Joseph Gabriel Rheinberger acted as a link between the two death masses. The sometimes translucent, elegiac (wistful) longing of man for perfection was quite present here. The congenial collaboration between the young organist Richard Brasier and the conductor Vincent Heitzer was felt to the very fingertips..." General Anzeiger, Bonn
