The Midweek Lunchtime Recital in St Jude’s Church Bowral on Wednesday 6 February will be the second Organ Recital celebrating the 210th anniversary of the birth of Felix Mendelssohn (3 February 1809). In this recital Allan Beavis will perform Mendelssohn’s Third, Second and First Organ Sonatas. Felix Mendelssohn holds a significant place among composers for the organ being the first major composer to write for the instrument following the death of J S Bach. His Six Organ Sonatas were commissioned by the English Publishers Coventry and Hollier in 1844 and published in 1845. They were well received in England and throughout Europe and been inspirational to later Romantic composers. Admission by donation.
