No Kilkenny Arts Festival would be complete without the world-renowned organist, Malcolm Proud. For this recital he delves into the vast Bach organ repertoire for another unmissable performance at St. Canice’s Cathedral.
The popular Fantastia and Fugue in c minor features alongside the joyous and triumphant Three Preludes on ‘Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland and the enduringly uplifting Prelude and Fugue in E minor, standing as a musical edifice to power and beauty.
Malcolm Proud is an unfussy musician.... But Proud is also something of a musical visionary. His steady vision allows him to communicate music with an unusual sense of inevitability, giving the impression that he has captured and can convey the essence of what he's playing with unusual fixity.
