Organ music: Bach, Mozart and Mendelssohn

Sara Mohr-Pietsch introduces an hour of the very best organ music and performances, including Bach interpreted by Percy Grainger, Mozart for four hands and a sonata by Mendelssohn.

On the first Sunday of every month, Sara Mohr-Pietsch introduces an hour of the very best organ music and performances. This week she features Percy Grainger taking a 'free ramble' through the music of Bach, a Mozart overture for four hands (complete with percussion), and Mendelssohn showing he was just as comfortable on the organ bench as he was at the piano.
