Loreto Aramendi: The Virtuoso Concert Organist Returns

February 16 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Organ Virtuoso Loreto Aramendi Returns to St James

Friday, February 16th, at 7:30 pm at St. James’

St. James’ is pleased to welcome back the brilliant Spanish virtuoso Loreto Aramendi, presenting a concert with music by Jehan Alain, Nicolaus Bruhns, Franz Liszt, Richard Wagner, and Maurice Duruflé.

What sets Loreto Aramendi’s concerts apart are the symphonic transcriptions of works by Liszt, Fauré, Rachmaninoff, and Saint-Saëns. These transcriptions are not simplified arrangements, but concert versions of great orchestral works which push both the instrument and player to the limit. They show off the rich tonal colours of the organ necessary for interpreting orchestral music, which are otherwise unheard in strict organ repertoire. As well, the organ transcriptions require a musician of exceptional virtuosic and artistic skill – and that, Loreto Aramendi has in spades. Click here to watch Loreto Aramendi on Youtube.

Absolute musicianship, sound technique, and utter command over the instrument – The Sydney Organ Journal

Thrilled by her genius… She has a unique gift that is very rare – JAV Records

As noted by the Society of Women Organists, women feature rarely in organ recitals, which makes this concert worthy of note.  To have an extraordinarily-talented virtuoso of Loreto’s calibre performing at St. James’ makes this an event not to be missed!
