Finally the organ is attracting centre stage attention. The restoration and reopening of the Royal Festival Hall instrument is set to inspire . . . .

Hi

Listening to last night's concert on iPlayer now.  It looks like Friday is a solo organ concert too from a brief look at the schedule on line yesterday.

Every Blessing

Tony

At the recent Bernard Foccroulle recital I was handed a flyer advertising Jennifer Bate, Cameron Carpenter, Martin Baker and notably the return of the free lunchtime organ recitals starting in September.  The Harrison & Harrison talks were also excellent, all part of the Pull Out All The Stops festival.
Must say the organ is now sounding absolutely splendid.  The new swell boxes must be some of the largest anywhere.  The Cameron Carpenter film evening helped show some of the colours available with this organ.  Congratulations H&H, a fantastic restoration.
One of my favourite organ destinations and only a short train ride from home!.
