Iain Farrington has an exceptionally busy and diverse career as a pianist, organist, composer and arranger. He studied at the Royal Academy of Music, London and at Cambridge University. He has made numerous recordings, and has broadcast on BBC Television, Classic FM and BBC Radio 3.

Abroad he has given concerts in the USA, Japan, South Africa, Malaysia, Hong Kong and all across Europe. He has worked with many of the country's leading musicians, including Bryn Terfel, Sir Paul McCartney and Lesley Garrett.

Iain played the piano at the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics with Rowan Atkinson, the London Symphony Orchestra and Sir Simon Rattle. He regularly performs with such ensembles as the London Sinfonietta, Britten Sinfonia and his own Farrington Ensemble. His solo performance in the Proms 2007 on the Royal Albert Hall organ was critically acclaimed, the Independent writing “he’s an authentic star, and deserves to have a Prom all to himself.” He was Organ Scholar at St John's College, Cambridge University, and Organ Scholar at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle where he played for numerous Royal occasions.

Iain is a prolific composer and arranger, and has made hundreds of arrangements from operas, chamber orchestral works to symphonies arranged for piano. Iain’s compositions have been performed internationally and recorded on numerous labels. His jazz guide to the orchestra Wing It for the Proms 2012 was a critical and popular success and his choral work The Burning Heavens was nominated for a British Composer Award in 2010. His organ work Fiesta! has received hundreds of performances worldwide and several commercial recordings and broadcasts. Other works include orchestral, instrumental and chamber works, choral music and much solo organ and piano music.

Iain’s numerous arrangements have been recorded, published and performed across the world, including at the 2011 Royal Wedding. He has made arrangements in many styles, including traditional African songs, Berlin cabaret, folk, klezmer, jazz and pop. He is the Arranger in Residence for the Aurora Orchestra who have performed his compositions and arrangements at the BBC Proms, including the Wallace and Gromit Prom and the Horrible Histories Prom. His solo piano arrangement of Elgar/Payne Symphony No.3 is published by Boosey and Hawkes, and his transcription of Elgar's Five Piano Improvisations is published by Novello.

Iain also appears as a conductor, often in his own arrangements and compositions. In 2013 he conducted his own orchestral arrangements of African songs for the debut album of Pumeza Matshikiza on Decca Classics. In 2011 he conducted his chamber version of Janacek’s The Cunning Little Vixen for the Ryedale Festival, as well as Prokofieff’s Peter and the Wolf and his own Animal Parade. He is playing/conducting Massenet’s Werther for English Touring Opera in Autumn 2015.
