Kenneth Leighton: Complete Organ Works
Resonus Classics is proud to present a major new recording of the complete organ works of the British twentieth-century composer Kenneth Leighton (1929–1988). With vivid interpretations, acclaimed organ virtuoso Stephen Farr breathes new life into this highly significant part of the composer’s output, recorded on the organs of St Giles' Cathedral in Edinburgh, Symphony Hall in Birmingham and St Paul's Church in Knightsbridge, London.
This three-disc set also includes all of his collaborative works for the instrument as well as Leighton’s only work for solo harpsichord. Joining Farr in collaborative works for this comprehensive survey are John Butt (organ), Chloë Hanslip (violin) and Nicky Spence (tenor) . Completing the set is Leighton's only solo work for harpsichord, which here receives its first recording.
