Organist James McVinnie has collaborated with some of the world's leading composers, producers and performers from classical, contemporary, popular and experimental music. Nico Muhly, Tom Jenkinson/Squarepusher, Martin Creed (winner of the 2001 Turner Prize), Richard Reed Parry (Arcade Fire), David Lang (winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize in music) and Bryce Dessner (The National) have written works for him. Recent highlights have included a solo recital at the Walt Disney Concert Hall, Los Angeles and a subsequent concerto debut with the Los Angeles Philharmonic under Esa Pekka Salonen in the LA Phil's Reykjavík Festival. He also led the first performance of 'Music in 12 Parts' by Philip Glass by anyone other than the composer's own Ensemble at London's Barbican Centre. His recent collaboration with Tom Jenkinson (Squarepusher) will be presented at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam by the Holland Festival in June 2017. Future projects include a commissioning project with the CRASH ensemble, a solo marathon recital of music by Philip Glass at the Paris Philharmonie and a collaboration with the electronic music duo Darkstar, a new concerto by Nico Muhly with the LA Philharmonic in their 2017/18 season as well as a return to Glyndebourne in 2018 to perform on stage concertos in Barrie Kosky's production of Handel's 'Saul'.
