John is an established fortepiano recitalist in the U.K. and abroad. His historically-informed approach to performance is a parallel expression of his academic research. Over several decades, John’s published books on Mozart have become fundamental scholarly texts, found in libraries all around the world. He has recorded three solo CDs (on fortepiano, and on two historic keyboards: a 1763 clavichord, and a 1764 harpsichord) and several more with his chamber group, Ensemble DeNOTE, including Mozart’s “Kegelstatt” Trio, and two of Beethoven’s self-arrangements (of the Septet, and the Piano & Winds Quintet).

Among his prestigious academic appointments John was Professor of Music at Bristol University; and subsequently Professor of Music at The University of London, where he was Director of The Institute of Musical Research, the UK’s national musicological research institute. He currently holds a Professorship at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
