Organ Recital feat. Paul Jacobs
Royce Hall Organ Recital featuring Paul Jacobs — Selected works of Messiaen (Livre Du Saint-Sacrement), Elgar, Price, Boulanger, Weaver, Demessieux — An extraordinarily expressive performer and intensely intelligent musician, Paul Jacobs has breathed new life into organ music. His sweeping marathon performances of the complete works of J.S. Bach, Messiaen and other composers, as well as his presentations of new works and core repertoire, engage and invigorate audiences, colleagues and critics alike. Jacobs makes his Royce Hall debut on the historic Skinner Organ in a program that will feature elements of the piece that earned him a 2011 Best Solo Instrumental Grammy—and the first-ever such award for solo organ—Messiaen’s Livre du Saint Sacrement, the composer’s last and longest organ work.
