:Virtuoso! Music for Organ
Daniel Moult performs virtuosic twentieth-century music on the organ of Bridlington Priory.
The twentieth-century saw some of the most audacious works ever composed for the organ. In this film with accompanying CD, acclaimed British organist Daniel Moult performs some of the most exciting and virtuosic of these pieces. From Schmidt to Messiaen he leads us through a bold selection of French, Austrian, Dutch and Australian repertoire.
By presenting the art of the organ virtuoso in close-up detail and with full surround sound, this DVD makes this music both exhilarating and accessible. The organ in Bridlington Priory, UK (1889 Anneessens / 2006 Nicholson), with its great power and array of beautiful colours, is the perfect vehicle for such a programme.
“A thrilling production … allowing one to marvel even more at Moult’s exhilarating musicianship.” Gramophone Magazine
"Ultimately this disc is a real winner ... A stylish and captivating player to watch ... Daniel Moult's playing is, from the outset, dazzling, and does much to demonstrate the versatility of the superb organ at Bridlington Priory."
