Colin Walsh Live on Radio 3
22 March 2013
Walsh will perform from Lincoln Cathedral in April
BBC Radio 3 is to broadcast a live organ recital outside the Proms season, for the first time in more than a decade.
Colin Walsh will perform from Lincoln Cathedral in the network's prestigious Radio 3 Live in Performance strand, from 7.30 to 9pm on Monday 15 April.
Walsh, who is the Cathedral's organist emeritus, pursued a three-year course of study with Jean Langlais at St.Clotilde in Paris; this inspired him to specialise in French symphonic and modern music, in particular the works of Franck, Vierne and Langlais. All of these composers, along with Tournemire, Dupré, Duruflé and Messiaen will feature in the live recital.
Organ music has become something of a backwater on the BBC's classical music station - Walsh's recital is thought to be the first live relay in the main schedule since a programme associated with the opening of the new organ in Symphony Hall, Birmingham, over ten years ago. This followed an 'Organ Night' when Gillian Weir broadcast live from Stockholm and Olivier Latry from Truro Cathedral in a single evening.
