Andrew Parrot is a British conductor, a former Music Director of the London Mozart Players and of the New York Collegium. Andrew Parrott’s exploration of the classical repertoire has included productions of operas by Haydn, Gluck and Mozart (six of them for Toronto’s Opera Atelier with period-instrument orchestra Tafelmusik) and the recording of all Beethoven’s works for piano and orchestra with Ronald Brautigam for BIS. He was an assistant to composer Michael Tippett for several years and a member of the vocal quartet Electric Phoenix. He also conducted a Taverner Choir. Andrew Parrott is perhaps best known for his pioneering work in pre-classical repertory (from medieval music to Handel), notably in performances with his own Taverner Consort, Choir & Players, who have also made 60 or so recordings together. An Oxford University graduate, he has always been involved in related musicological research and has published two challenging books, The Essential Bach Choir (2000) and Composers' Intentions? (2015).
