This Tuesday evening, join us for a very special organ performance from Artist-in-Residence David Briggs. David returns to the Cathedral for a Great Music in a Great Space program, which will include two orchestral excerpts from the operas of Richard Wagner; Jean Guillou’s brilliant transcription of Franz Liszt’s blazing symphonic poem Prometheus; and David’s own 1990 transcription of Richard Strauss’s profoundly moving tone poem Tod und Verklärung (Death and Transfiguration).
The ticketed concert will be preceded by a free virtual pre-concert lecture on Facebook at 6pm, in which David will reveal his secrets about the art of transcribing and interpreting vast scores by Wagner, Liszt and Strauss.
Tuesday, February 23rd at 7pm EST. For tickets and more info: https://www.stjohndivine.org/calendar/38451/great-music-in-a-great-space-david-briggs
