Andrew Dewar

6:30pm Organ Recital by Andrew Dewar: Dupré and his legacy

St Patrick’s Cathedral 
Andrew’s programme on the mighty Willis organ in St Patrick’s Cathedral celebrates the music and legacy of seminal French organist and composer Marcel Dupré, who died 50 years ago.  This is a particularly appropriate combination of organist, venue and music, as Dupré himself was a friend of Willis and indeed dedicated several pieces to him.

Daniel presents a programme celebrating the music of Jan Peterzoon Sweelinck, who died in 1621.
