Get Organised

Popular lunchtime concerts with John Kitchen

Monday 05 June 2017 to Monday 19 June 2017

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 5 June at 1.10pm
Variations

This programme of variations will include  17th- and 18th-century works by Sweelinck, Pachelbel  and Bach  (the Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor) as well as more recent variations by the Dutch composer Feike Asma, and Denis Bédard’s Variations sur Kelvingrove.

Monday 12 June at 1.10pm
John and friends

John will be joined by Sally Carr (soprano) and Katherine Rutherford (mezzo soprano).  Sally will perform songs by Handel and Hugo Wolf, and Katherine will sing three of the little-known but beautiful Bible Songs by Stanford.  There will also be some organ solos.

Monday 19 June at 1.10pm
Light music on the organ

Featured in this unusual programme will be music in lighter style,  specifically written for the organ,  by the late Mike Thomson, for many years associated with St Machar’s Cathedral,  Aberdeen,  but who was also a theatre organist.  His pieces will include the  stirring Scots March, Tullich to Inverey  and the catchy strathspey Whirly-Granny, as well as a quick march On the square and the evocative Parc de Paris.

The next Get Organised concerts are on Mondays 11, 18 and 25 September.
