DaveHarries Posted April 22, 2012 Share Posted April 22, 2012 Hi all, Just looked through the schedule of the 2012 Proms season. The organ does not feature this year until fairly late in the season, which is a pity. What does feature sounds like it could be quite good and also it is better than no organ at all, of course. Saturday 01st September, 4pm, Prom 66 Cameron Carpenter - organ JS Bach - Prelude & Fugue in E flat Major (BWV552, St. Anne) (arr. Schoenberg / C. Carpenter) JS Bach - Choral Prelude on 'Nun freut euch, lieben Christen' (BWV734) (arr. Buson / C. Carpenter) JS Bach - Partita no. 3 in E major for solo violin (BWV1006) (excerpt) (arr. C. Carpenter) C. Carpenter - Improvisation on B.A.C.H JS Bach - Toccata and Fugue in F major (BWV540) JS Bach - Prelude and Fugue in A major (BWV536) Sunday 02nd September, 4pm, Prom 68 Cameron Carpenter - organ Carpenter - Improvisation on the Bourée from Cello Suite No. 3 in C Major, BWV1009 JS Bach - Fantasia & Fugue in G Minor JS Bach - Prelude & Fugue no. 15 in G Major (BWV860) Bach / Mahler - Syncretic Prelude & Fugue in D Major (arr. Carpenter) Monday 03rd September, 7:30pm, Prom 70 Desert Island Discs 70th Anniversary Prom Features past castaways from the BBC Radio 4 series. JS Bach's Toccata & Fugue in D minor (BWV565) is among the music choices. Wayne Marshall - organ Away from the organ, proms 38, 40, 59 & 74 will be on my listening agenda. As a side note, Prom 53 (1612 Italian Vespers) (22nd August) sounds like it will be really good: it includes a reconstruction of Gabrielli's colossal Magnificat a 20/28 con il 'sicut locutus'.
