Welcome to the Website of Nigel Potts
Nigel Potts has become renowned worldwide as “a consummate musician who knows how to communicate the essence of [the] music” (The American Organist), and whose “playing is assured and stylish” (Organists' Review, UK). He has built a reputation for his expressive, colorful and tasteful performances, always communicating and placing the music at the forefront with “…warm, sympathetic playing” (Choir & Organ, UK).
Critics are consistent in their remarks about his unique “sense of expression which never cloys” (The Sydney Organ Journal, Australia); “broad command of tonal color” (The New Mexican, USA); “gift for extracting melody, highlighting the phrase and his exactitude in exploiting the vast palette of the tonal colour” (Organ News, New Zealand); and the way in which he uses the organs “extensive resources with imagination and taste”. (The Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians, USA).
