Daniel Moult has a busy freelance career as a concert organist, tutor and broadcaster. He has gained a reputation as one of the leading organists of his generation and performs throughout the UK and internationally. Recent highlights in London include a concert of Mozart’s organ music at King’s Place, as part of the Mozart Unwrapped festival, and concerts celebrating Handel with the London Early Opera Orchestra. He recently toured France and Switzerland with Kammerorchester Basel, with whom he has also recorded for Sony BMG. He wrote and presented the documentary The Elusive English Organ, which was broadcast on television, to complement his recordings of English repertoire from 1550 – 1830.
