Midday Music for Organ 2/1: CU Music

Wednesday, February 1, 2023 at 12:30pm to 1:10pm

Sage Chapel, Chapel
Central Campus

Midday Music for Organ: Annette Richards, “Nature’s music.” Storms, birds, forests, and song, with music by Frescobaldi, Sweelinck, Poglietti, and Phillips.

How can the organ, that wondrous mechanical marvel, envoice nature? In this program we hear how the instrument's music reanimates the sounds of the natural world — the rumble of thunder and the crack of lightning, the lilting hum of the forest, the whisper of falling leaves, the trills of the nightingale, and the persistent call of the cuckoo — in works by Frescobaldi, Mundy, Peerson, Poglietti and others.
