Gordon Stewart

During each season audience members approach Gordon Stewart and ask for certain pieces to be played. This programme includes three of those requests.  During the summer of 1975 Gordon Stewart studied in Belgium with the organist Flor Peeters; the final piece is a tribute to him and to his influence on generations of young organists.

“Gordon Stewart is a marvellously engaging performer. He almost literally runs onto the stage, and before he plays a note transmits a sense of energy, fun and anticipation. This touch of showbiz and the scattering about of funny stories prepares you to fully enjoy yourself. Gordon’s ‘show’ is very visual, but nothing of this style of delivery detracts from the seriously good musicianship of his performance. On the contrary, it energises and places in the mainstream an instrument which, certainly in the eyes of the young and the unchurched, can seem stuffy and dull……Gordon Stewart is a vibrant and accomplished player, at one with his instrument and his audience, whom he delighted from beginning to end.” Organ Australia
