Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, home of our Op. 76, announces its 2010-11 Master Musicians: Organ series. Recitals will be presented by Gunnar Idenstam (6 November 2010), Joan Lippincott (26 February 2011), and Thierry Escaich (16 April 2011).
If you’re unable to attend these programs, you may be interested in some recordings. Delos has announced the 31 August release of a disc featuring Cherry Rhodes. Recorded live on 14 October 2006, her program was the first full-length solo recital presented on the Fred J.
Cooper Memorial Organ. It can be pre-ordered at Amazon.
Also of interest is a recent disc of Alan Morrison and The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia that features Eric Sessler’s Organ Concerto as well as works by Anne Wilson, Bach, Jongen, Locklair and Hampton. It’s available through iTunes or as a CD from the OHS Catalog.
