Product Description

It was the architect Sir Christopher Wren who famously referred to the organ of St Paul's Cathedral as a "confounded box of whistles". Wren had already designed the case into which the organ would be built, but the organ builder, Bernard Smith, wanted to include extra pipes which wouldn't fit into Wren's design. Although not intended as a compliment, it is actually quite an accurate description of a pipe organ. The "confounded box of whistles" at St Martin's Church in Liskeard, Cornwall.

Product Description

Includes many popular jazz and classical pieces as well as some improvisations.

You might like to listen to Jonathan's latest recording of him as a pianist and arranger: Called The Entertainer the disc includes two lively Scott Joplin sequences, the other being the Maple Leaf Rag. The dexterity and variety in his playing comes across in pieces like Gershwin's Summertime, Hubert Bath's Cornish Rhapsody and Weill's Mack the Knife. The variety takes us from In the Mood through Debussy's Clair de lune and Dohnanyi's capricious concert Etude to the sheer tour de force of Rimsky Korsakov's Flight of the Bumblebee. The disc is real entertainment. Cornish Guardian Wednesday 13 June 2007 Track List: 1. The Entertainer 2. Summertime 3. Cornish Rhapsody 4. Improvisation 5. Cappriccio - Dohnanyi 6.
