Gigout – Grand Choeur Dialogué
The programme opens with this short work, written for the uncommon instrumentation of organ in ‘dialogue’ with a brass ensemble. The majestic style of the theme is bright and rhythmic, and the dialogue steadily intensifies throughout, displaying many of the exciting contrasts available in a large organ.
Mozart – The Magic Flute Overture
This well-loved opera was premiered just two months before Mozart’s death; it was a hit and was the greatest operatic success of his career. The overture is considered by many to be his greatest.
Vaughan Williams - The Lark Ascending
The soaring, lyrical melodies of this work for violin and orchestra makes it a perennial favourite with audiences.
Saint-Saëns - Symphony No.3 "Organ Symphony"
Premiered in London 135 years ago, this symphony was immediately popular and is considered to be a staple work in the orchestral repertoire. Listeners will quickly recognise its most well-known theme in the Finale – it featured in the 1995 movie Babe, and was used in Keeley and Fitzgerald’s 1977 hit record “If I Had Words to Make a Day for You”. Hear the organ rumble!
