Organ Concerto

Organ Concerto

for organ and orchestra


  • Instrumentation: organ and orchestra
  • Edition: performance material

 
description
The concerto is a tribute to the harmonium I played as a teenager, an atonal New York cat who fights tonality, and congregations worldwide who struggle weekly with the hymn, Humiliated and Insulted.

I occasionally use musics which are like surreal familiar objects – like seeing the music from my ‘village harmonium greatest hits compendium’ days in another life – like when I die and go to Heaven and hear them there. Gerald Barry
