Sun 8 Mar JS Bach Mass in B minor
Tue 17 Mar Organ Recital Philip Berg

Details

JS Bach Toccata, Adagio, Fugue; Buxtehude Ciacona in E minor; Messiaen Les Bergers; Dupre´ Corte`ge et Litanie; Debussy En Bateau; Euge`ne Reuchsel Two pieces from Images de Provence; H Parry Toccata and Fugue (The Wanderer).

This recital calls to mind Bach’s 200-mile walk to hear Buxtehude play the organ, and his ‘mental journey’ in incorporating Italian influences in one of his most impressive pieces for the instrument. We hoist sails with Debussy, walk with Reuchsel in Provence, listen to Messiaen’s evocation of the nativity shepherds and the steady tread of a funeral corte`ge, and wander with Parry through his mighty Toccata and Fugue – ‘The Wanderer’.

Philip Berg MVO, is Master of the Music at The Queen’s Chapel of the Savoy, and until recently was Director of Music at St Paul’s Juniors, and Organist, St Paul’s School.
