Richard Gowers virtual recital

Richard Gowers will present a virtual recital on 29th January at 8:00pm on Richard McVeigh’s Beauty in Sound YouTube Channel. His recital will include the Reubke Sonata on the 94th Psalm.

Richard McVeigh’s instrument is one of the most notable Hauptwerk virtual pipe organ consoles in the world, and is a replica of the Harrison & Harrison York Minster console.

Some members will recall the memorable BDOA outing to King’s College in April 2019, when we joined Richard Gowers in the organ loft of that most notable instrument before he gave us a short recital. After Cambridge Richard held a scholarship in piano studies at the Royal Academy of Music. He is currently Professor of Organ at Trinity Laban Conservatoire and has a busy and varied freelance career.
