Description

The choice of organ arrangements of string music by Mozart for tonight’s organ recital reflects the major works by Haydn and Beethoven in the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra’s 7.30pm concert this evening. Mozart originally wrote his extraordinary C minor String Fugue for two pianos, and the organ arrangement by French virtuoso Jean Guillou is itself a tour de force. Widor’s Fifth Symphony closes with the famous Toccata, but that Symphony’s opening movement is equally marvellous - a fine set of variations that show the influence of Schumann and another of tonight’s orchestral composers, Mendelssohn. Picking up on the German/Italian theme, J.S. Bach’s masterly arrangement of Vivaldi’s D minor Concerto completes the programme

 

VIVALDI/BACH Organ Concerto in D minor BWV 596

MOZART Epistle Sonata in C (arr. Jean Guillou)

WIDOR Symphony No 5, Allegro (First movement)
