I will be performing a lunchtime piano recital on Thursday 11 May 2017 at St Mary’s Church, Bathwick, Bath. This recital is part of a series of lunchtime recitals arranged to raise funds for the restoration of the 1878 Father Willis organ at St Mary’s Church.
The music will start at 12:30pm and will include the following works:
Schumann: selections from Kinderscenen
Schoenberg: first movement from Klavierstucke
Other works to be played will be announced on the day. Entry is free but the audience are encouraged to give generously to support the organ restoration fund.
The 19th century organ was last restored in 1980 but is now in need of further restoration work. As well as being an example of a well respected British organ manufacturer, Henry Willis & Sons, the organ also boasts another famous connection. In 2001 the rock group Muse recorded the organ for the song Megalomania for their second studio album, Origin of Symmetry.
