To celebrate the bicentennial of César Franck's birth in 1822, Scott Dettra performs all twelve of the composer's major organ works on the Aeolian organ in two recitals (January 29 at 8:00 p.m. and January 30 at 5:00 p.m.). Admission is free.
Dettra, an "outstanding musician" (The Diapason) and "an organist with both impeccable musical taste and dazzling technique to burn" (Fanfare), has been acclaimed as one of America's leading concert organists. Previously the organist of Washington National Cathedral, he is currently director of music at the Church of the Incarnation in Dallas, Texas.
