Challenger to give organ recital
5:22pm Thursday 3rd October 2013 in Entertainments
JOHN Challenger, organist at Salisbury Cathedral, gives the prestigious Emery Recital on Wednesday, October 9 at 7.30pm.
The event brings to a close this year’s organ recital series at the cathedral with a Parisian programme including works by Alain, Duruflé, Demessieux, Langlais and Vierne.
“My cathedral organ recital this year features works by composers from Paris, a city which, since the birth of the French Romantic organ genre in the 19th century, has been the cultural capital for generations of French organistcomposers,”
“I hope that this programme will show the amazing versatility of our great Father Willis organ, which sounds particularly splendid in this area of organ repertoire.”
Tickets, priced at £8, are available online from salisburycathedral.org.uk and at the door.
