Birmingham City Organist, Thomas Trotter, gives the inaugural concert on the newly commission Garnier pipe organ installed in the Elgar Concert Hall this summer. Thomas is joined by Simon Halsey and Birmingham University Singers for this performance of Duruflé's nine-movement Requiem, a work strongly influenced by Gregorian chant, a deep appreciation for the liturgy, and featuring both solo baritone and mezzo soprano. The first half of the concert acts as an opportunity to hear the organ in all its glory, including a performance of J S Bach’s Concerto for solo organ No. 2, an arrangement of Vivaldi’s a double violin Concerto in A minor, Op. 3, No. 8.

Venue: Elgar Concert Hall, Bramall Music Building
