Organ recital.

Dr Andrew Johnstone

  • 📅Tuesday, November 28, 2023
  • 🕥14:30 - 15:30

Our calendar year will finish, as last year, with an organ recital by Andrew Johnstone in St Joseph's church, Glasthule on Tuesday 28th November at 2.30 - note the later time.

Dr Johnstone is a member of the Music Department in Trinity College Dublin.

The programme has the title "Bach and his pupils and is pupils' pupils".

Up to the 20th century, a series of notable German, Belgian and then French organists have been claimed to constitute an "apostolic succession" transmitting Bach's organ playing and composing methods down the centuries. The recital will move backwards in time from the 20th century, and geographically from France via Belgium to Germany.

Apart from J.S. Bach himself, the programme will include any or all of the following:

Georg Bohm

Johann Christoph Kittel

Johann Christian Heinrich Rinck

Adolpf Friedrich Hesse

Jacque-Nicolas Lemmens

Alexandre Guilmant

Charles-Marie Widor

Marcel dupré

Jeanne Demessieux.

Last year's recital was very enjoyable and members are encouraged to bring family and friends if they so wish.
