Douglas Hollick


Douglas Hollick at St Jacobi HamburgWith an international reputation as an organist and harpsichordist, Douglas Hollick studied with Peter Hurford, Marie-Claire Alain and Gustav Leonhardt. He has played widely both here and abroad, and teaches in Clare and Churchill Colleges, Cambridge. He has recorded twice for Czech Radio and in 1995 he recorded an organ CD entitled The Young Bach for Supraphon in the Czech Republic which attracted very favourable reviews.

Recent years have seen him playing fortepiano as well as organ and harpsichord, complementing his interest in the music of the late 18th and early 19th centuries; the Dussek Duo with harpist Eleanor Turner is one result of this. Douglas Hollick was awarded a year 2000 Churchill Fellowship to visit North Germany and Denmark researching organs and other keyboard instruments of Buxtehude and the young J S Bach. 

His recordings on Riverrun Records are the extraordinary harpsichord and organ music of Christophe Moyreau, Buxtehude, master and pupil, recorded in Buxtehude’s church of Sct Mariae at Helsingør in Denmark, music from the period of the French Revolution for harpsichord, square piano and organ, and  Music of the Baroque avant-garde for harpsichord and organ released in July 2007 as a tribute to Buxtehude in his tercentenary year, the organ part of which was recorded in Trinity College Chapel Cambridge.
