Maestoso

 

This is the title of a new CD of romantic organ music by Elgar and Bairstow recorded here at St Matthew’s, and performed by Callum Alger. Our magnificent 4-manual organ by JW Walker was built in 1895 – the same year Elgar completed his G major Sonata – and is the ideal instrument for the interpretation of these works.

As many may recall, Callum was a chorister and organ scholar here. He went on to study at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and the Hochschule für Musik und Theater ‘Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy’ in Leipzig. During the academic year 2019-20 he was Organ Scholar of Westminster Cathedral.

Callum won first-prizes at the IAO/RCO Organ Playing Competition (2018) and the Dame Gillian Weir Messiaen Competition (2018), and was a finalist in the St Albans International Organ Competition (2021). He is currently Director of Music at St Peter’s Collegiate Church, Wolverhampton.

Suffice to say he is one of the most promising organists of his generation. The package is nicely produced, and the quality of the recording is probably the best our organ has yet received. Please do consider supporting Callum – the CD is available from Presto Classical and many other on-line stores. Available for download and streaming shortly.
