Music at GMC

DVD Screening: 'The Genius of Cavaillé-Coll'

Event: DVD Screening
Date: 2pm, Saturday 20th April, 2013
Introduced by: Will Fraser (Fugue State Films)

'The Genius of Cavaillé-Coll' is the definitive documentary celebrating the 200th anniversary of the greatest organ builder of the nineteenth century and the music he inspired. It features organists Gerard Brooks, Daniel Roth, Olivier Latry, Pierre Pincemaille amongst others playing seventeen organs including St Sulpice, Notre Dame, St Ouen, Rouen and St Sernin, Toulouse.

The DVD was shown using the Church's new large screen & projector along with a high quality surround-sound system (to faithfully reproduce the sound of those wonderful instruments) and there was the chance to purchase the DVD (and other Fugue State Films titles) at reduced rates.

The afternoon was a great success with over 60 attendees. A big thank you to the four local Organists Associations (Bournemouth, Bristol, Dorset and Salisbury) who sponsored the event and helped achieve the large turn-out.

If anyone would like a repeat showing or have ideas for another similar event then please let us know!
