It's Jonathan Hope playing a recital in Gloucester Cathedral under Richard McVeigh's 'Beauty in Sound' banner. Three pieces - opens with BWV 541 and closes with Vierne 2, but in the middle, there is JH's simply astonishing own transcription of Elgar's Froissart Overture. It's a great piece and it shows off the music, the player and the organ brilliantly. The Bach and Vierne are, of course, brilliant as well, but, for me, the Elgar wins the cup being new to me, though I heard it at the RFH in a concert two years' ago, and it comes all the more alive from being able to see JH perform it. (There are several 'Beauty in Sound' videos in this new Gloucester project.) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
