David Yearsley and Annette Richards, organ, "Environs Franck": CU Music

Friday, March 4, 2022 at 7:00pm

St. Luke Lutheran Church 109 Oak Avenue

In the year of César Franck’s 200th birthday, Cornell’s University Organists Annette Richards and David Yearsley perform a joint recital exploring the musical worlds of one of the central figures of the 19th-century organ repertoire. The Cavaillé-Coll style instrument, completed by Juget-Sinclair in 2016 at St. Luke Lutheran Church in Collegetown, faithfully reproduces the sounds (and feel) of the organs that thrilled Franck, and provides a gorgeous vehicle for Franck’s Trois Pièces and the Chorale no. 3 in A Minor. Also on the program is the ravishing “Andante Sostenuto” from the Symphonie Gothique by Franck’s successor at the Paris Conservatoire, Charles Marie Widor, and the music of the composer who stood as model, inspiration, and authority for them both, J. S. Bach.

Anna Steppler presents “Winter Light,” an organ recital of seasonal music.

Compliance with the university's mask mandate will be required for all audience members.
