David Dunnett is Organist at Norwich Cathedral. Earlier in his career he was Assistant Director of Music at Uppingham School where he worked with Binns Organ Trustee Neil Page.
He brings us a wide-ranging programme of original organ music and transcriptions. Alfred Hollins was “discovered” after a recital at what is now the Broadway Cinema; he played to Widor and went on to teach Eric Coates, who was described as “the man who writes tunes”. Another tunesmith was the Belgian Joseph Jongen, whose lyrical Cantabile is contrasted with a sprightly but whimsical Menuet-Scherzo. Mendelssohn played on the new organ at Birmingham Town Hall where a later City Organist, C W Perkins, was involved in designing the organ at the Albert Hall Nottingham. The transcriptions come from a variety of sources: Debussy from the piano, Vivaldi from a string orchestra, Walton from a jazz-age combo and finally Eric Coates from a full symphony orchestra confidently informing us who’s In Town Tonight.
