Popular lunchtime concerts with John Kitchen
Monday 27 January 2020
Join City Organist John Kitchen for his popular lunchtime concerts on the world renowned Usher Hall organ with its magnificent sound. Whether performing organ classics, adapting classical and other music or playing audience requests, John's inimitable performances and conversation will delight.
MONDAY 20 APRIL at 1.10pm
Music by Edward Elgar
Elgar’s great Organ Sonata in G is his only substantial original work for the organ, and this concert will include movements from it. Fortunately, much of Elgar’s other music sounds well in organ transcription, and the recital will include excerpts from the Enigma Variations, two of the Vesper Voluntaries, and favourites such as Salut d’Amour and Pomp and Circumstance March no. 4.
MONDAY 27 APRIL at 1.10pm
