2021 Opening Recital ‘The King of Instruments’

Organist Daniel Moult puts St Mary’s new Klais/Hey Orgelbau Pipe Organ through its paces.  A renown concert organist, Daniel is recognised for his skill and imagination in drawing every aspect of colour that can be produced by ‘The King of Instruments’.  This concert showcases all the excitement, passion and pathos that can be produced by an organ, especially when played by ‘one of the finest organists of our time’ (The Organ).   

The concert will include some of the best recognised and most loved organ pieces alongside a few less familiar compositions.  It is also an exercise in time travel for organ music starting in the 17th century and progressing to the 20th. 

J.S. Bach: Toccata, Adagio & Fuga (BWV 564)

Bach’s Toccata, Adagio and Fuga includes one of the longest known pedal introductions composed by Bach.

J.A. Guilan: Tierce en Taille & Basse de Trompette

J A Guilan has been described as reaching the summit in expressiveness for his time, as illustrated by this short piece. 

W.A Mozart: Fantasia in F Minor

Mozart’s Fantasia in F Minor was originally composed for a mechanical clock before being transformed for the organ and the origin of the piece is evident making listening to the piece a unique experience.

J. Francaix: Suite Carmelite

J Francaix was known to be influenced by Ravel, Stravinsky and Poulenc and the Suite Carmelite evidences the drama, lightness and wit that he took from these composers.

G.Thalben-Ball: Pedal Variations

One of the major skills in organ playing is the use of the player’s feet to add in layers of sound.  This piece offers an enchanting opportunity for the audience to appreciate the skill and dexterity involved and the extra-ordinary effects that can be achieved.

Harold Britton: Gershwin Variations

‘I got rhythm’ joyfully reinterpreted for the organ combining Gershwin’s talent for an outstanding tune with Britton’s extraordinary vision for optimising the scope of organ music.
