Bach for Breakfast Part 2 - The World-Famous Organist
Thursday, Aug 16, 2018, 10:00am
First Congregational Church, Camden
CHRISTOPHER HOULIHAN, organ
Bach’s compositions for organ pushed the limits of what was thought possible for the instrument and its performers. Few details are known of Bach’s own performances, except that he wowed and surprised his listeners. His extensive travels to examine and perform dedication recitals of new organs left such an impression that he was described in his obituary as Bach, "the world-famous organist."
Organist Christopher Houlihan is an "intelligently virtuoso musician" Gramophone
