Marcel Dupré's set of preludes and fugues struck the musical world like a jolt of electricity when they were published in 1920. Jazzy, exuberant, atmospheric, and notoriously difficult to play, they have been audience favorites ever since.

Joining them on this program is Sigfrid Karg-Elert’s Symphony in F# minor. This mammoth piece was written in 1930, but lay undiscovered in a publisher's archive until 1984. Come hear Karg-Elert's little-known masterpiece, one of the summits of the organ repertoire, in a dramatic and passionate performance by the Cathedral's Associate Director of Music, Raymond Nagem.

A preconcert reception and lecture will take place at 6:30 pm in the Chapel of St. James. Places for the reception are limited; those attending must RSVP by emailing Stephen Biegner at sbiegner@stjohndivine.org.
