Event description

Description

Fauré Requiem plus Barber and Elgar
RTÉ Concert Orchestra, Pipeworks Festival Chorus, Fergal Caulfield (organ), David Leigh (conductor)
Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, 8pm
In partnership with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra and Saint Patrick’s Cathedral

Fergal Caulfield—a former Dublin International Organ Competition prizewinner and one of Ireland’s leading keyboard players—takes the virtuosic solo organ part in Toccata festiva, a work revealing a surprisingly exuberant side to its composer Samuel (Adagio for Strings) Barber. Elgar’s youthful Organ Sonata emerges as the composer’s first major symphonic work in a highly reputed but seldom heard orchestral version by Gordon Jacob. The Festival Chorus, formed especially for this event, joins the RTÉ Concert Orchestra under the baton of Pipeworks artistic director David Leigh in a rare performance of the lavish full orchestral version of Fauré’s well-loved Requiem.

Programme:
Barber Toccata Festiva
Elgar Organ Sonata in G major Op 28 Orch Jacob
Fauré Requiem
