Exploration of Aristide Cavaillé-Coll and the French Romantic period in organ music
Documentary Film Screening of “The Genius of Cavaillé-Coll” and Organ Concert
Friday, February 27, 7:30 p.m. at Augustana
Aristide Cavaillé-Coll (1811–1899) built five-hundred revolutionary organs in France in the Nineteenth Century that inspired composers such as Franck and Widor to write the most famous and popular organ music ever composed. The Genius of Cavaillé-Coll was filmed throughout France over nine months between 2011 and 2012. This magnificent movie sums up Cavaillé-Coll’s extraordinary life and career. Consequently, it received an award from the BBC Music Magazine as the best documentary for 2014.
The program includes a screening of the film, a conversation about the French culture of the time, and a live performance of music inspired by Cavaillé-Coll organs on Augustana’s four manual, 64 rank, Reuter organ. Among the performers are notable area organists, including Frank Perko of Plymouth Congregational Church and Cindy Lindeen-Martin of Augustana Lutheran Church.
Tickets ($24/adult, $15/senior/student, $8/children 5–12 years) are available online at www.augustanadenver.org or by calling 303-388-4962.
