Read more about the programme:
Gigout – Grand Choeur Dialogué
The programme opens with this short work, written for the uncommon instrumentation of organ in ‘dialogue’ with a brass ensemble. The majestic style of the theme is bright and rhythmic, and the dialogue steadily intensifies throughout, displaying many of the exciting contrasts available in pipe organs.

Mozart – Andantino from Concerto for Flute & Harp
This elegant and graceful melody of this movement simmers with Mozartean magic. Some consider this to be some of Mozart’s most exquisite writing for flute...

Mozart – The Magic Flute (selected arias)
This well-loved opera was premiered just two months before Mozart’s death; it was an instant hit and was the greatest operatic success of his career. The overture is considered by many to be his greatest and the opera itself contains some of the most beautiful arias Mozart ever wrote.

Saint-Saëns - Symphony No.3 "Organ Symphony"
Premiered in London 135 years ago, this symphony was immediately popular and is considered to be a staple work in the orchestral repertoire.

Listeners will recognise its most well-known theme in the Finale – it featured in the 1995 movie “Babe”, and in Keeley and Fitzgerald’s 1977 hit record “If I Had Words”.
