] He is left-handed. He became a chorister at Canterbury Cathedral when he was 7, attending the choir school from 1956 to 1961 and later Simon Langton Grammar School for Boys. [ [http://www.ofchoristers.net/Chapters/Canterbury.htm Of Choristers, ancient and modern: Canterbury] ] After receiving instruction in piano and organ, he served as a church organist; by the time he was 15, he had begun to play the harpsichord. At 19, he entered the Royal College of Music in London, where he held a Foundation Scholarship for organ and later studied harpsichord, winning the major prizes for performance on both instruments.cite web

Directing from the harpsichord

As a harpsichordist, he toured Europe with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields.Citation

] While a student at the RCM, he was told by the registrar, John Stainer, that it would be impossible to make a living as a harpsichordist. To maximise his possibilities for work early on in his career, he included in his repertoire not only the regular baroque repertoire, but also modern harpsichord concertos including Roberto Gerhard's concerto for harpsichord, percussion and strings, Manuel de Falla's concerto for harpsichord, Frank Martin's "Petite symphonie concertante" for harp, harpsichord, piano and double string orchestra and Francis Poulenc's "Concert Champêtre".Citation

- He performed and recorded the "Concert Champêtre" in 1991.]

He made his London debut at the Royal Festival Hall in 1966 with the Galliard Harpsichord Trio, which he co-founded with Stephen Preston, flute, and Anthony Pleeth, cello. At this stage, they were playing baroque music on modern instruments. His solo harpsichord debut was in 1968 at the Purcell Room in London.Citation

] In November 1972 the Galliard Trio expanded to become The English Concert, an orchestra specialising in performances of baroque and early classical music on period instruments. [The Academy of Ancient Music was founded by fellow English harpsichordist-conductor Christopher Hogwood at around the same time.] They initially started with seven people but soon grew in size. The decision to move to period performance was taken for a number of reasons:Citation

"When the members of the English Concert were looking for a new conductor and artistic director, they decided on Andrew Manze, and I think they made a good choice. But it was their decision."] Trevor Pinnock was at the forefront of the period performance movement and the revitalisation of the baroque repertoire; the reaction of Leonard Bernstein to his performances is typical: "In my opinion, the work of the conductor Trevor Pinnock in this area is particularly exciting - his performances of Bach and Handel make me jump out of my seat!"

] In 1975, Pinnock played the harpsichord in the first ever performance of Rameau's last opera, "Les Boréades", under John Eliot Gardiner. [ [http://magnatune.com/artists/pinnock Rameau recording liner notes] ] He toured North America with The English Concert for the first time in 1983; he had earlier spent two periods as "Artist in Residence" at Washington University, St. Louis. His debut at The Proms was in 1980; he later directed Handel's "Solomon" in 1986 and many other large-scale works with his orchestra. They toured worldwide and made numerous recordings, Pinnock directing "with a characteristic energy and enthusiasm which are readily communicated to audiences." The Choir of the English Concert was at first an ad-hoc group of singers assembled as needed, originally in 1983 for the first performance this century of Rameau's "Acante et Céphise"; it became a standing choir in the mid-1990s at the time they were performing Bach's "Mass in B minor". This allowed the ensemble to regularly perform baroque operas, oratorios and other vocal works; a series of Bach's major choral works followed.

Recent years

In 2004 he commissioned modern harpsichord music by English composer John Webb: "Surge" (2004), "is built up over an implacable rhythmic repeat-figure. Though neither is explicitly tonal, each skilfully avoids the merely percussive effect that the harpsichord's complex overtones can all too easily impart to more densely dissonant music." He has also played the same composer's "Ebb" (2000), which "comprises a spasmodic discourse against a manic background of descending scale patterns like a kind of out-of-kilter change-ringing."
