Zacchaeus Lock, Organ Recital

July 11, 2018 - 12:15pm - 12:45pm

France and America: the Old World Meets the New

In this program, organist Zacchaeus Lock will explore some of the great works in the French and American traditions. While the music of France might at times be characterized by its tradition and restraint, some French composers have certainly eschewed such processes, opting instead for a courageous musical individualism similar to that found in the music of many American composers. Gospel tunes and Gregorian Chant will collide in an entertaining program of 19th and 20h century music, including works of Langlais, Bolcom, and Lefebure-Wely.
