He relinquished his Westminster post in 1987, and has since led an international concert career, and has also composed works for the organ, the best-known of which is probably his "Alleluyas", written in the style of Olivier Messiaen. His playing approach, always very clean and precise, has mellowed from the fiery and incisive style of his younger days, to the more sedate and comfortable now, though always with mastery of the instrument and the work in question.

He has many recordings to his credit, including the complete works of J. S. Bach for Deutsche Grammophon. Read more on Last.fm.
