About This Event

James McVinnie is a chameleon among organists who has held titles at Westminster Abbey and St Paul’s Cathedral, yet also worked with Philip Glass and The National’s Bryce Dessner. In a Prom that explores the organ in a contemporary light, he navigates the time-warping oscillations of Philip Glass’s Minimalist Mad Rush, before giving the UK premiere of Canadian composer Samy Moussa’s A Globe Itself Infolding with the BBC Concert Orchestra and Principal Guest Conductor Anna-Maria Helsing.
