|Title:||D'Arcy Trinkwon - Concert|
|Performed by:||D'Arcy Trinkwon, Concert Organist|
|Time:||Friday, 26 July 2019, at 7:30pm|
|Place:||Arundel Cathedral, Arundel|
|Description:||Following the successes of his three-concert Franck series and then the closing concert in the Arundel Festival last year, the illustrious musician D’Arcy Trinkwon returns to play the great music of four of the towering 19th century composers – Brahms, Schumann, Mendelssohn and Liszt - on the famous 1873 Hill organ in Arundel Cathedral.
This series presents a unique chance to hear the works of these four musical giants in one series; it is believed to be the first time that these works have all been heard in a series in the UK.
Each of the four concerts concentrates on the complete or major organ works of each composer:
July 26: LISZT - Great Organ Works
Prelude & Fugue on B.A.C.H.
Évocation à la Chapelle Sistine
Variations on Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Zagen
Fantasia & Fugue Ad nos, ad salutarem undam
Liszt was the greatest celebrity performer of the 19th century; aristocratic ladies would swoon at his recitals (after they had thrown their jewels at his feet on the stage) and the world was in awe of his astonishing keyboard brilliance. Others – such as Clara Schumann – came to bitterly resent his enormous success.
Liszt revived and enriched the organ’s repertoire with a number of monumental works. Those artists who can only access their spectacular virtuosity and not their deep spiritual power and conviction never get near the full picture: these works have the power to touch the soul and the heart, but to boil the adrenalin with awesome power.
“Have patience, place your foot securely on every step in order to reach the heights on a secure footing. Nature works slowly; follow her example.”
One of the distinguished musicians of his generation, D’Arcy Trinkwon performs worldwide and is acclaimed for his outstanding artistry. Renowned for his dedication to bring the organ and its music as a wide an audience as possible without the need for musical compromise: he is acclaimed for lifting audiences up – not for playing down to them.
“D’Arcy Trinkwon... for anyone needing to be converted to organ music.”
