Organ Recital – Andrew Benson-Wilson

In Aid Of RadCan
European Organ Music 1600 to 1750

SATURDAY 27 SEPTEMBER 2014 – 3.00 pm

Andrew Benson-WilsonAndrew Benson-Wilson specialises in the performance of early organ music, ranging from early 14th and 15th century manuscripts to composers of the late Classical period. His playing is informed by experience of historic organs, an understanding of period performance techniques and by several internationally renowned teachers. Andrew’s concerts have ranged from the prestigious London concert hall of St John’s, Smith Square to a tiny 17th century chamber organ in a medieval castle in Croatia. According to one reviewer, his St John’s, Smith Square recital ”proved to be one of the most rewarding organ recitals heard in London in years, an enthralling experience”.

The Ledsham Memorial Organ at All Saints Parish Church was designed and built by Martin Goetze and Dominic Gwynn in 2011

The recital will be followed by afternoon tea – proceeds to RadCan (Charity No. 1140906) Click here to download an application form or click here to download a poster for the event.
