Andrew McCrea opens the new season at St Swithun's, Worcester: 1st June at 1pm

 

 

This remarkable small organ has all (except, sadly, the trumpet) of its original late eighteenth-century ranks: restored by Goetze and Gwynn, this Gray 1795 organ is worth travelling to hear. The stopped diapason alone is worth the petrol. And the entire church is fascinating.

Henry Fairs at St Swithun's, Worcester: 8th June at 1pm

 

 

This week's recital features Henry Fairs playing the remarkable St Swithun's organ (Gray 1795; altered - but, mercifully, only minimally, with one stop removed and one added, in the early nineteenth century; enlarged but not altered by Nicholson in 1844; not subsequently changed; restored to glory by Goetze and Gwynn).

Born in 1979, Jean-Baptiste Dupont began his musical studies at the piano. He

discovered the organ later, at the age of 12 and began organ studies at the

Institute of Sacred Music of Toulouse. He graduated with distinction from the

organ departement at the Conservatoire in Toulouse. As one of the top alumni

of the Conservatoire, he was awarded the Francis Vidal prize by the city of

Toulouse in 2006 and subsequently continued his studies at the Centre d’Etudes

Supérieures de Musique et Danse in Toulouse. Jean-Baptiste Dupont’s organ,

improvisation, harpsichord and piano teachers included Michel Bouvard, Louis

Robilliard, Philippe Lefebvre, Jan Willem Jansen and Thérèse Dussaut.

 

He was finalist in several organ competitions, both in interpretation and

improvisation. He won the 3rd prize in “Xavier Darasse” international competition

(Toulouse, France) in October 2008; 2nd prize + audience prize in "Mikael

Tariverdiev" competition in Kaliningrad, Russia, 2009; and the 1st prize

(improvisation) in St Albans international competition in July 2009.

 

Jean-Baptiste Dupont has a broad repertoire ranging from the renaissance

to the present day, much of it from the 19th and 20th century. Continuing in

the traditions of César Franck, Jean-Baptiste Dupont has been hailed as one

of the greatest young improvisers on the organ. He is also a composer.

 

Passionate about the art of organ building, and about organ archaeology, he

has worked with consultants on many organ restoration projects. He also

worked with organ-builders to perfect his knowledge of this instrument. He

inventoried the organs in Midi-Pyrenees Region (South-West of France).

He has contributed to several books about organ builders from the 19th

century in Midi-Pyrenees.

 

Jean- Baptise Dupont was appointed organist of Bordeaux Cathedral in April 2012

Cathy Lamb
is the joint Director of Music at Lichfield Cathedral, alongside her husband, Benjamin Lamb. Part of her role includes Directing and organizing the Cathedral’s exciting outreach project entitled ‘MusicShare’, which has been part of the government’s “Sing Up” initiative. This project involves taking the Lichfield Cathedral Choristers and the Lichfield Cathedral Girl Choristers-designate out into local schools to share their music-making. Each term then culminates in large joint concerts in Lichfield Cathedral. In addition to this role Cathy directs the Lichfield Cathedral School Girl Choristers-designate – a specialist, scholarship-based choir for girls at the school. She also founded the Lichfield Cathedral Young Voices in December 2007 – the Cathedral’s Saturday morning choir for 8-13 year olds in the area. Cathy’s former roles have included working with the Cathedral Choirs of Salisbury and Wells and the founding of a girls’ choir at Christchurch Priory in Dorset. She also ran the Bournemouth Symphony Youth Chorus. She studied Music at Cambridge where she was Organ Scholar at Sidney Sussex College – a role which involved directing and running the choir. Cathy is increasingly in demand as an animateur, teacher and director for education-based projects for organizations such as the Royal School of Church Music and Oundle for organists. Though most of Cathy's current work is as conductor, motivator and director she has not forgotten her roots as an organist and continues to play regularly for Cathedral services and at many of the major venues across the UK.

 

The organ
amalgamates two redundant Binns instruments: Beechen Grove Baptist Church, Watford and St Augustine's Tonge Moor, Bolton.A small amount of non-Binns pipework has been retained.The imaginative scheme has been carried out by B.C. Shepherd and Sons in collaboration with J.H. Males.

One is in the presence of a superb organist and musician....an artist in possession of real maturity. Nadia Boulanger

 

An excellent organist with a brilliant and accurate technique and a fine musical interpretation. Marcel Dupré

 

I have the greatest admiration for him, for his musicianship and artistry as well as a human being. Yehudi Menuhin[/indent]

 

Remarkable gifts.......I have not heard such playing since the days of G.D. Cunningham....He has a valuable contribution to make. Sir Thomas Armstrong

 

Stephen Hicks
was born in Surrey in 1949. His early training was as a pianist at Trinity College of Music, London, where at the age of 15 he passed the Licentiateship diploma, won the Billy Mayerl Scholarship and was invited to make his debut playing the Schumann Concerto with the English Chamber Orchestra conducted by Benjamin Britten. His first organ lessons were with Dr. Harry Gabb and already at 17 he became the youngest person to obtain the Fellowship diploma of the College in organ-playing. His playing was heard by Yehudi Menuhin and Nadia Boulanger who invited him to study with her in Paris and at the American Conservatoire in Fontainebleau for four years without charge. With scholarships from the Countess of Munster Musical Trust and the British Government he remained in Paris for several years where his teachers included such legendary names as Marcel Dupre,(organ) Andre Marchal, (organ) Casadesus, (piano) and Puyana (harpsichord). Whilst still a student in Paris he was invited by Pierre Cochereau to play his first recital at Notre Dame Cathedral and also made his debut as soloist with the Orchestre Philharmonique de l`O.R.T.F. He also took post-graduate studies at the Royal College of Music with Ralph Downes (organ), and in that year became the youngest organ soloist at the Henry Wood Promenade Concerts in the Royal Albert Hall. At the end of this period, Nadia Boulanger wrote; `It gives me great pleasure to state the magnificent success which has closed the period of studies of Stephen Hicks. His talent is outstanding and he starts his career with all the elements of exceptional achievement.` Since then he has toured giving numerous concerts throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland, France, Monaco, Norway, Sweden, Belgium, Holland, Spain, Poland, Switzerland, Germany and USA. He has played at the most prestigious cathedrals, churches, concert halls and at such festivals as the City of London, Oxford, Windsor, Harrogate, Paris, Brussels, Bruges, Ghent; Kristiansand, Bergen, Trondheim Olavsdagene, Krakow etc,etc. His extensive repertoire encompasses every school of organ music and organ playing, and to each he brings an acute sense of style and scholarship along with a highly acclaimed virtuoso technique. His performances of Bach, Cesar Franck and Marcel Dupre have been especially praised. Since 1983 he has lived in Norway where he is organist at the `Bergstadens Ziir` in Røros.

 

A first class player and thoroughly deserving of the tributes paid to him by Menuhin and Dupré. THE GRAMOPHONE England

 

Stephen Hicks in the complete 'Nativite' of Messiaen. This ex-pupil of Nadia Boulanger doesn't hide his preference for the classics and romantics, nevertheless revealed himself to be a magisterial interpreter of Messiaen. As before, (we heard him for the first time last year) he was absolutely dazzling. Stephen Hicks is a great interpreter, very subtle in his understanding of the composer's thought. A complete master of his technique, he knows also how to measure his effects. One cannot wish for more than to achieve the sort of success he enjoyed with his audience. (translation) LA DERNIER HEURE

 

The organ
amalgamates two redundant Binns instruments: Beechen Grove Baptist Church, Watford and St Augustine's Tonge Moor, Bolton.A small amount of non-Binns pipework has been retained.The imaginative scheme has been carried out by B.C. Shepherd and Sons in collaboration with J.H. Males.

Richard studied organ with David Willcocks, gaining both ARCO and FRCO diplomas

In addition he plays regularly with the country’s leading orchestras, both solo and continuo. He has travelled widely in Europe, Japan, South Africa, USA, Bermuda, Australia and New Zealand. In 2000 he performed the complete organ works of J S Bach at Southwark and has recently given recitals in Paris (at Notre-Dame and La Trinité), Germany and the Netherlands. A new solo CD of French and Belgian organ music, recorded at Southwark for REGENT RECORDS was released in July 2010.

 

In May 2011 Peter Wright was awarded the prestigious FRSCM, in recognition of his work at Southwark and for church music in general, and he is also an Honorary Fellow of the Guild of Church Musicians. Now a Vice-President of the Royal College of Organists, Peter Wright became a member of the Council in 1990 and was Chief Examiner from 1997 before becoming President (2005-2008).
