About This Event
Latvian organist Iveta Apkalna makes her Proms debut with a programme of French 19th- and 20th-century music.
Widor’s thrilling Organ Symphony No. 5, with its famous final-movement Toccata, offers sprawling, extrovert drama, a mood it shares with prize-winning French composer-organist Thierry Escaich’s exuberant Évocations, with their nods to Baroque and Renaissance music.
Works by Franck and Bach’s great G major Fantasia, with its ‘wonderful variations and foreign tones’, complete the programme given on the Royal Albert Hall’s famous ‘Father’ Willis organ.
There will be no interval
