Tickets £12



Vivaldi/Bach arr Guy Bovet Concerto in B
minor after BWV 1065


Buxtehude Passacaglia in D minor BuxWV 161

Franz Danksagmüller Estampie

Cecilia McDowall Celebration

Rinck Variations on a Theme by Corelli Op.56

Langlais Fête

This eclectic programme mirrors the concept
of St Mary Barnes’ classically inspired Peter
Collins organ. Danksagmüller’s eerie but
ultimately thrilling Estampie (2007) is based
on the first tone sequence of the Buxtehude’s
Passacaglia in D minor, while Vivaldi’s Concerto
in B minor
and Rinck’s Variations on a Theme
by Corelli
are rooted in the traditions the
organ pays homage to. The instrument’s
neo-classical colours are brought to the fore
in McDowall’s Celebration and Langlais’ Fête,
both a nod to this significant year for the
Barnes Music Festival.
