 Pipeworks

From its beginnings in 1980 as the Dublin International Organ & Choral Festival, Pipeworks has brought to Irish audiences a diverse programme of music-making with the organ at its centre, fully exploiting not only the wonderful range of instruments to be found in Ireland, but the splendid cathedrals, churches and concert halls which house them.

 

Pipeworks has expanded its remit to explore Ireland’s organ heritage. In non-festival years, Pipeworks presents recital series and has become known for its complete-works series, having presented the complete organ works of J.S. Bach, Felix Mendelssohn, Dieterich Buxtehude and Olivier Messiaen, as well as the complete organ symphonies of Louis Vierne, all given by organists resident in Ireland.

Well-known recitalist and teacher David Adams, Professor of Organ at the Royal Irish Academy of Music, will present a workshop on music composed between 1500 and 1800. The workshop will focus on questions of articulation, registration and general interpretation, and participants will benefit from David's expertise in the performance of early music. Organists of all levels are invited to participate, and are welcome to bring along copies of scores as samples for discussion, or simply to observe.  

12th March: Romantic and 20th-century Music Performance with David Leigh 

David Leigh, Pipeworks Artistic Director, will present a workshop on organ music composed between 1800 and the present day. As a renowned exponent of the works of Reger, Vierne, Messiaen and many others from this period, David will offer valuable advice on stylistic issues and questions of registration. Organists of all levels are invited to participate, and are welcome to bring along copies of scores as samples for discussion.
