Spennende besøk fra England

En av Englands fremste organister, Margareth Phillips, gjester Bergen for første gang. Et spennende møte med et utrolig musikalsk menneske og virtuos artist.

 

Regarded as one of Britain's most outstanding concert organists and teachers, Margaret Phillips made her début at the Royal Festival Hall and soon gained an international reputation as a soloist, playing at concert halls and cathedrals throughout Europe and in the U.S.A., Canada, Australia and Mexico. Alongside her busy concert career, she was a member of Council of the Royal College of Organists for 20 years, and President of the Incorporated Association of Organists from 1997–99. Since 1996 she has been Professor of Organ at the Royal College of Music in London.
            Performance highlights in recent times have included the first concert for many years on the Flentrop organ in the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London, and concerts on historically significant organs such as Grauhof and Naumburg (Germany), Haarlem (Holland) and Marmoutier and Bordeaux (France). She was the first British artist to play an organ concert on the new organ in the recently rebuilt Frauenkirche in Dresden.
            Margaret regularly gives masterclasses both at home and abroad, and has served on international competition juries. Her critically acclaimed recordings include the complete organ works of Mendelssohn, Saint-Saëns and Stanley, and March 2012 saw the release of the final volume of her project to record the complete organ works of Bach. The first two CDs received 5-star reviews, and, together with a recording of the Orgelbüchlein, have been hailed as ‘some of the finest performances of Bach chorale preludes on disc’.
            In 1994, Margaret Phillips and her husband founded the English Organ School and Museum in former chapel premises in Milborne Port, Somerset, where they have a collection of organs by English organ builders from the eighteenth century to the present day.
