All Stops Out!

David Drury at the Organ

Bach’s Toccata & Fugue
Hear the Grand Organ
Date Fri 14 Jun Venue Sydney Opera House
Duration 50 mins (no interval)

Sydney's favourite organist returns to the console of the Sydney Opera House Grand Organ for another breathtaking recital.

The program begins with Johann Sebastian Bach's great Toccata and Fugue in D minor. (Yes, the famous one!) Orchestras might think they can play this music, but there's simply nothing to match the power and flexibility of the organ sound. 

The ethereal sound of women's voices joins the mix for Brahms and music by German organist Sigfrid Karg-Elert. Louis Vierne shows the organ's meditative face; Mozart its dramatic verve. And Karg-Elert brings the program to a close with a spectacular march based on the hymn "Now thank we all our God". Behold the King of Instruments!
