COP26 Organ Recital

COP26 Organ Recital

Music in the University
Date: Wednesday 27 October 2021
Time: 13:10 - 14:00
Venue: University of Glasgow Memorial Chapel
Category: Concerts and music, COP26 Physical
Speaker: Kevin Bowyer

University organist Kevin Bowyer will perform Charles Camilleri's Missa Mundi (Mass of the World) in full, as part of COP26.

Kevin Bowyer was born in Southend-on-Sea in January 1961 and studied with Christopher Bowers-Broadbent, David Sanger, Virginia Black and Paul Steinitz. In his early career he won first prizes in five international organ competitions and his 1987 world premiere of Kaikhosru Sorabji’s two hour solo Symphony for Organ, considered “impossible” ever since its publication in 1925, helped to cement his reputation as a player of contemporary music and music of extreme technical complexity. In June 2010 he premiered Sorabji’s Second Symphony for Organ (1929-32) in Glasgow and Amsterdam – at nearly 8 hours duration, the longest notated organ work of all.
