Huddersfield Town Hall 13.00

Birds feature in the opening part of this concert. The first piece will be remembered as the theme music for BBC’s Going for a Song.  The music of Jehan Alain does not often feature in the series, but the two pieces to be played today are perhaps his most popular. And to end… the most frequently requested piece at the town hall, Widor’s Toccata in F.

“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
