‘Bach Bowl,’ ‘Scary Ride’ back for organ season

By jessica moore

University Organist Timothy Albrecht kicks off the 2009-10 University Organist Recital Series with “Bach Live!”, a performance of organ monuments by J.S. Bach including the “Prelude and Fugue in D Major” and selections from the “Well-Tempered Clavier” as well as Franz Liszt’s “Fantasy and Fugue on B.A.C.H.”

Albrecht returns as “Count Dracula” for the wildly successful Halloween concert, “Scary Ride” featuring organ music to scare all ages. This year’s installment of “The Bach Bowl!” on Superbowl Sunday features Tamara and Timothy Albrecht performing the intricate mirror fugue for two from Bach’s “Art of Fugue” as well as other Bach masterpieces.

For those looking for a respite from the whirlwind of events during graduation, Albrecht will perform a 50-minute program of light classics in the “Commencement Weekend Organ Recital.”

Guest artist Herndon Spillman, the head of the organ program at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge will present a concert of music by the French composer and organist Maurice Duruflé in “All Duruflé!” Todd Wilson, professor of organ at Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music, will perform “Razzle Dazzle Fireworks!”
