Organ Recital

  • Sir Jack Lyons Concert Hall, University of York United Kingdom (map)

Max Reger  Introduction and Passacaglia                    

Johannes Brahms  Chorale Prelude and Fugue “O Traurigkeit, o Herzeleid!”

Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy  Prelude and Fugue No.1 in C minor

Johann Sebastian Bach  Chorale Partita “Sei gegrüsset, Jesu gütig”  BWV 768

Franz Liszt  Fantasia and Fugue on the name BACH   

Of the many organ genres of the 18th century, the Chorale Partita is perhaps the least familiar; this concert gives an opportunity to hear one of Bach’s finest offerings and to spot his influence on later composers. The concert hall’s neo-classical organ built by Grant, Degens and Bradbeer would have been recognized by Bach and also by Mendelssohn, Liszt, Brahms and even Reger.
