Midweek Lunchtime Recital
Celebrating the 210th anniversary of the birth of
Clare Pryor and Allan Beavis (Organ)
The first Midweek Lunchtime Recital for 2019 will be the first of two recitals commemorating the 210th anniversary of the birth of Felix Mendelssohn (3 February 1809). In this recital Clare Pryor will perform Mendelssohn’s Sixth Organ Sonata and Allan Beavis will perform his Fifth and Fourth Sonatas. Felix Mendelssohn holds a significant place among composers for the organ being the first major composer to write for the instrument following the death of J S Bach. His Six Organ Sonatas (none of which is in sonata form) have been seen as belonging to the “required repertory of all organists” and are often included in major recitals.
