We did the Southwark Monday lunch one last year. If you've not been before, sit as close to the front as you can, organ sounds best there!

Indeed; I was taught on that organ by Harry Bramma - possibly the least satisfactory place to sit to hear the organ is at the console!

Bradford Organists' Association are organising an 'Organ Extravaganza' featuring Carlo Curley at Bradford Cathedral on Saturday 20th February, 7.30 p.m. Tickets £10 (£8 concessions). This is part of the Association's Centenary Year celebrations. BOA is 100 years old and 100+ members strong (no founder members now, sadly!).

 

Ron

well,twas a good concert, and love him or hate him, carlo can certainly put "bums" on seats, the place was packed, and hope some interest was given to the BOA. The only. i found a bit much, was the fact there was a 25 min intermission in the middle, ok, so CD and DVD's had to be sold sometime.

Was it me, or has CC mellowed a bit over the intervening years :D

Absolutely, I love him and he does put bums on seats, and he does not suffer fools gladly.

How many concerts can be described as "packed" these days ?

Yes it was quite the highest attendance I've seen there at a recital for some time, and an excellent start to the Bradford Association's centenary year. And then this morning up here in the frozen north we woke up to some 3" of snow to negotiate - the 15 minute journey to Shipley took twice as long...

I too was "stuck" in bradford , missed out on a lunch buffet, , but what was worse,,,,, it was paid for 2 weeks ago.

It was my first Bradford recital, and loved the bit where he said it was in sore need of a " 32' pedal reed"

Yes Peter I liked the bit about the 32' reed too - we'd all like one of those! But without knowing the internals of the cathedral organ, they do take up rather a lot of space! Some would say that organ needs a great 16' double first, the only manual double is a 16' quintaton on the choir.

Shame about your lunch though...

Hi

 

The 25 minute interval was needed to give time for people to get a cup of tea - the queue had hardly finished when I gave a "2 minute warning" of the restart. We had planned for 20 minutes (at Carlo's request). The Cathedral Administrator reckoned that over 200 people were there - I would have thought possibly a good few more.

 

It was interesting to hear Carlo preparing in the afternoon - and pretty quickly getting to grips with a somewhat idiosyncratic organ. In reply to another post, I hear that a digital 32ft pedal reed is in the pipeline.

 

Every Blessing

it was prob just me then, so used to not having a "tea break" in the middle of an organ recital. I did a very rough head count, and got 240, so was a good turn out, especially on a cold night
