The two Hungarians not only played music, they were themselves the music – in every nerve – down to their fingertips.

David Titterington (organ)

David Titterington, the leading British organist, requires little introduction to a domestic audience. Head of department at London’s Royal Academy of Music, he has developed an impressive and remarkably diverse repertoire during a career studded with successes. He maintains close personal and working relations with numerous contemporary composers. He selected pieces for tonight’s concert from this delightfully eclectic performance oeuvre, focusing on the music of his homeland while also bringing attention to organ works by lesser-known 20th century composers. For instance, there are works by Kenneth Leighton, Frank Bridge and Judith Weir, the first woman in history to hold the title Master of the Queen’s Music. This far from grey and foggy Albion landscape is only further enhanced with fascinating compositions by the Dutch artist Hendrik Andriessen, the 19th century Frenchman Boëly, and the Anglo-Canadian Healey Willan.
