Product description

Product Description

The Usher Halls monumental organ celebrated its 100th birthday in 2014. Delphian artist and Edinburgh City Organist John Kitchen has established a hugely popular series of concerts at the Hall, and draws on its repertoire to follow up his 2004 recording of the then newly restored instrument with a programme that further represents the vast variety of music that draws in the Edinburgh crowds. Opening with an evocative new work by Cecilia McDowall, the first part of the programme resounds with the theme of bells (including the instruments extraordinary carillon). Jeremy Culls compelling transcription of Hamish MacCunns The Land of the Mountain and the Flood displays all of Kitchens virtuosic aplomb, while the Dance Variations on Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer are a much delighted-in annual request. A recital of this nature wouldnt be complete without a major piece of Bach, here dispatched with appropriately Edwardian swagger.

Review

'this is a superb recital that explores a wide-range of music. Kitchen has presented a number of new works possibly to become new favourites? and some well-established masterpieces. He brings huge flair, understanding, characteristic humour and an intimate knowledge of organ registration and repertoire to this disc.' --John France Music Web International, 7thApril 2015

***** 'Kitchen despatches each and all with performances that blend aesthetic nuance with bravura showmanship ... Delphian s vivid record sound adds to the considerable pleasure.' --Michael Quinn - Choir and Organ, May June 2015

'John Kitchen oozes out every sound possible from this monster of an organ' Daily Classical Music Gerald Fenech, 18th May 2015 ---------- 'Bell sounds abound in this well chosen programme ... 'Custodian' organist, John Kitchen, misses no tricks, even the ubiquitous Widor seems not at all out of place with the preceding proceedings. The Passacaglia is a real treat, played in veritable Edwardian English style (not so widely approved of since the 1960 s). Encore!' --Michael Bell Organists Review, June 2015
