Sorry to bump up an old topic!

 

Just returned from Southwark Cathedral, where Ludo Geloen opened today's recital with some Becker - the 'Toccata' from the First Sonata (not the one mentioned previously). Having looked it up on IMSLP, it seems to be fairly playable and quite listener-friendly.

 

There was some other interesting repertoire, including a Sonata by Edgar Tinel, who I'd not come across before.

 

As ever, the Southwark instrument was sounding great - although as PW explained, the two big solo reeds were out of action due to rain damage. Indeed, throughout the recital there was a multitude of buckets placed in the crossing, catching drips!

This sounds slightly worrying - I hope that they have not had lead stolen from the roof.
