Lippes Concert Hall in Slee Hall

 

Solo recital co-sponsored by the UB Department of Music, the Buffalo Chapter of the American Guild of Organists and St. Joseph's Cathedral, with support from the Buffalo Niagara Friends of Music.

 

This is the first of two programs in Buffalo on the weekend of April 21-23 featuring Nathan Laube. The C.B. Fisk organ at Slee Hall represents a pivotal movement in the tonal and mechanical narrative of one of America's leading modern organbuilders - C.B. Fisk - drawing equally on German Baroque and French Symphonic models to create a versatile and compelling medium for the two largest bodies of organ literature and beyond.

Solo recital co-sponsored between St. Joseph's Cathedral, the Buffalo Chapter of the American Guild of Organists, and the UB Department of Music.

 

This is the second of two programs in Buffalo during the weekend of April 21-23 featuring Nathan Laube on two of the cities most significant instruments. The 1876 E.& G.G. Hook & Hastings organ - the "Centennial Organ" - originally designed for the 1876 Centennial Exhibition in Philadelphia, was moved to St. Joseph Cathedral in the following year and has stood in the rear organ loft ever since. It is a monument of 19th-century American organbuilding and was considered in its time to be among the finest and most comprehensive of modern pipe organs.

The 2017 Celebrity Recital will be given by US star Nathan Laube, making a special visit to Holbrook just for the East of England Organ Day.

Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris

 

Récital d'orgue, one of the four full-length solo recitals offered each season in the rare silence of the closed Cathedral. Perhaps no organ in France traces the entire history of French organbuilding within one instrument as does the world-famous organ of Notre-Dame. Incoporating a great deal of the Thierry and Clicquot organs, the 1868 Cavaillé-Coll organ made famous by the likes of Louis Vierne and Pierre Cochereau, is an instrument of unique poetry and power.

The Sofia Kyrkan is home to one of the most thriving music departments in Stockholm, and particularly rich in choral tradition.  Appropriately, its recently rebuilt organ reflects the accompanimental strenghts of English organs, sensitively executed by the firm Nicholson.
