Daniel Moult, described by The Organ as one of the finest organists of our time, will be giving this year's annual organ concert on Wednesday 18 May at 7.30pm. He has established a strong reputation throughout the UK, Europe and Australia as the reviews below show.
Tickets are £12 on the door or £10 in advance. They can be obtained from the church office during weekday mornings or direct from the organiser Derrick Matthews (telephone 01296 488076). The concert will be in the comfortable seating of our church and video projections enable everyone to clearly see the keyboards and foot pedals. We are in for another treat from this very popular event.
"Exhilarating musicianship...a thrilling production...Daniel Moult holds nothing back in his programme of 20th-century tours de force..." Gramophone
"...one of the finest organists of our time... More, please!" The Organ
"Daniel Moult has proved his brilliant technique... Moult has a world-renowned reputation..." The Sydney Organ Journal
"There is no doubt that Daniel Moult is a virtuoso...formidable technique... Moult is an impressive player...and gives powerful readings of all the pieces...he brings out the vast range of expression and tone..." Organists' Review
"...Moult's exceptionally fluid keyboard and pedal technique. Hundreds of thousands of key strokes whizz by as Moult works his way through toccatas...he demonstrates a contained virtuosity... an object lesson in the unfussy performance of some fiendishly difficult repertoire..." Choir & Organ
