An exciting organ recital this Saturday – 立教学院主催オルガンリサイタル(土曜日)


Recital organist Bryan Ashley is in Tokyo from Boston, USA, to prepare for his recital here at Rikkyo University this coming Saturday.  Bryan is organist at the Christian Science Mother Church in Boston, which boasts one of the world’s greatest church organs.  Here is the church’s website organ page.  There is a video of Bryan performing Bach’s Eb Major Fugue if you scroll down and click on it.  I have heard him practicing on our Tickell organ, and assure you that this is going to be one HOT recital!  All the music was chosen to highlight the Tickell’s abilities, and Bryan plays it all with passion and style.  I really do think this will be a concert to remember.  The doors to the Rikkyo University All Saints Chapel (Ikebukuro campus) open at 1:30, and the concert begins at 2:00.  Admission is free.  Here the concert poster, as well as a couple of snapshots of Bryan at work in the chapel today.  The program can be found at the bottom of the page.
