over 50 years of organ concerts


Patrons:  DR David Hill, DR francis jackson CBE and

Dame Gillian Weir DBE

 

On Tue 7 Nov the 75+ audience witnessed a masterclass performance by Sarah Baldock’s programme of organ music which was both eclectic and technically demanding. It  included a rare public performance of Swiss composer Frank Martin’s “Passacaille pour orgue”. Her recital ended on a high note when she played two movements from Maurice Durufle’s Suite Op 5 - “Sicilienne” and “Toccata”.


We heard at the end of October that Douglas Tang was unable to give the December concert. Claudia Grinnell (Winchester Cathedral) has kindly agreed to play and her programme can be viewed here.
