Mendelssohn & Pärt

(B)eyond Classics

Mendelssohn & Pärt

A program designed and ideally suited to the intimate surroundings of Westminster United Church and its magnificent Casavant Frères organ. We will welcome back Sarah Svendsen who will show it off in Francis Poulenc’s Organ Concerto, a lookback to J.S. Bach. Mendelssohn too was deeply interested in the music of Bachand infused much of Bach’s spirit and mastery in the uplifting Reformation Symphony.

Get more acquainted

  • Poulenc’s Concerto for Organ, Timpani & Strings is going to be played on a real pipe organ – it’s the REAL DEAL.
  • Hearing this piece in as intimate a venue as Westminster United Church is exactly how it was meant to be played. Even though it’s an organ concerto, the piece is very playful. It’s an organ, but it’s fun.
  • Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 5 is light, energized, and romantic.
  • Pärt’s Trisagion is incredibly meditative. Our Operations Associate, James Manishen, says listening to this piece is “just like waking up”.
