APPARITIONS


Johann Sebastian Bach: Mirror fugue
Pēteris Vasks: Te Deum for organ
Lydia Kavina: Fata Morgana for theremin and loop station
Olivier Messiaen: Apparition de l’eglise eternelle for organ

Our Rush Hour concert this year celebrates the incredible organ recently installed in Merton Chapel with two immense works: Messiaen’s soul-shaking, earth-shattering vision of the Eternal Church, and Vasks’ celebration of the liberation of his homeland, Latvia, from Soviet oppression. Around them, Bach’s impossibly fine tapestry of sound is just as dazzling when the music is turned inside out and upside down; and Lydia Kavina turns the unearthly sounds of the theremin into a vision of the dangerous, seductive Siren, Fata Morgana.

Duration: 1:00 with no interval
