Stephen Farr at the Metzler Organ of Trinity College, Cambridge
Following on from his acclaimed world premiere recording of Judith Bingham's The Everlasting Crown, Stephen Farr releases a rare recording of the Metzler organ of Trinity College, Cambridge. The 1975 Metzler organ of Trinity College, Cambridge contains pipework retained from earlier organs installed by Father Smith in 1694 and 1708 and it is this combination of the new and old that colours the musical programme with the message that old and modern idioms can be close, not distant, relations.

The album features several world premiere recordings including Huw Watkins’ Pièce d’Orgue, Lionel Rogg’s Ricercare Cromatico, Jon Laukvik’s Monody with Variations and Bernard Foccroulle’s Spiegel. The recording also contains the first recording of a specially commissioned work by the acclaimed British composer, Judith Bingham entitled Jacquet’s Ghost, which explores the unique tonal qualities of Trinity’s organ.

'[...] an excellent program of mostly short contemporary works on the 1975 Metzler organ of Trinity College, Cambridge. [...] Farr's playing and the recorded sound are both superb.'
