Anyone Going To The Organ Gala Concert At The Rah?

I went last year with a group of non-organists and including some children and an enjoyable time was had by all. The programme looks similar to last years. Definately sitting downstairs this time because we were literally blasted out upstairs and it scared a couple of the younger children.

 

There are a couple of interesting concerts involving the organ in the Proms this year. Elgar and Buxtehude, I think.

 

I have just noticed there is a recital at the RAH to be given by Oliver Latry on Friday 29th June which looks very interesting.

I've just had the flyer through for this. Programme as follows:

 

Bach: Sinfonia fr. Cantata 29 (trans. M Dupré)

Widor: March of the Night Watchman

Berlioz: Hangarian March (Trans. Büsser)

Alkan: Prière

Franck: Choral No. 3 in A Minor

Guilmant: Final fr. Sonata No. 1

Dupré: Choral on 'In dulci jubilo'.

Rachmaninov: Prelude (not sure which one - prob. the ubiquitous c# Minor) Trans. Vierne

Vierne: Final fr. Symphonie No. 3

Latry: "Improvisation".

 

Looks interesting - what do you think?

Looks rather "bitty" to me. People may well appreciate the variety though.

 

 

Yes, one complete large work would have been welcome. Lets hope his improvisation will be better than the one he gave at his recital at the RFH. I fear that, like many improvisers, his art declines outside the liturgical environment.

 

Worth noting that Roth is at Southwark on the 27th June:

 

Wednesday 27 June, 7.30pm - Daniel Roth (organ)

 

Widor: Symphonie 7: Final, Choral

Lefébure-Wely: Offertoire sur un Noël en fa majeur, Sortie en sol mineur

Clérambault: Récits de cromorne et de cornet séparé en dialogue, Basse et Dessus de Trompette, Flûtes

Nivers: Offerte en fugue et dialogue

Widor: Symphonie 8: Adagio in F# major

Daniel Roth: Fantaisie fuguée sur Regina caeli

Grunenwald: La mélodie intérieure

Dupré: Paraphrase sur le Te Deum
