VCH ORGAN SERIES – ISABELLE DEMERS
November 20, 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
20 Nov, Mon
Niccolò Paganini was a prolific violinist, whose devilish virtuosity was unparalleled. His Caprice No. 24 in A minor for solo violin is a notoriously difficult piece to perform, and its theme has inspired many variations. Imagine playing the variations with only your feet, impossible you say? This incredible feat will be performed by Canadian professional organist Isabelle Demers, along with J.S. Bach’s intricate Prelude and Fugue in D major, excerpts from Demers’ own arrangement of Prokofiev’s ballet Cinderella which will transport you right to the doorsteps of the ballroom and Rachel Laurin’s Three Short Studies, Op. 68, culminating in a scintillating Finale from Louis Vierne’s Symphony No. 5.
Doors open half an hour before the concert. Suitable for ages 5 and above. No admission for infants-in-arms.
