Huddersfield Town Hall 13.00

February 24 Gordon Stewart

George McPhee has been organist of Paisley Abbey since 1963; this performance of his Prelude on Highland Cathedral will be its first outside Scotland.  Max Reger wrote much of his finest music for organ, and his Opus 59 works are amongst his most approachable. The programme ends with Franz Liszt’s great tribute to J S Bach.

Walond                       Voluntary in G

Bach                            Fugue on the Magnificat

Reger                          Toccata and Fugue in D minor/major

Guilmant                    Scherzo (Sonata 5)

Liszt                            Prelude and Fugue on BACH

“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
