Artist - Jonathan Ryan
For those not in the know, CMAA Board Member and Colloquium Faculty member Jonathan Ryan is a multi-prize winning organist. Lauded for his strong communicative skills in a variety of styles, exceptional use of the instrument's capabilities, and bold programming, he has emerged as one of North America’s premier young concert artists.
With a repertoire spanning the 16th- to 21st-centuries, he has performed at celebrated venues, festivals, and conventions throughout the North America and Europe.
And now Jonathan Ryan has brought forth a brand new CD of a new solo organ recording. Recorded on a specifically chosen European pipe organ famous for its brilliant fusion of German, French, and English Romantic styles, the repertoire centers around music with significant influences from another style or nationality, and which additionally makes strong connections between North America and Europe.
Included are major works by Healey Willan and Marcel Dupre: the German-inspired Introduction, Passacaglia, and Fugue, Op. 149 and Gregorian-chant based Symphonie-Passion, Op. 23 respectively.
Also featured is a commissioned piece by renowned English composer Philip Moore, and the recording premiere of Ride in a High Speed Train by contemporary Dutch composer Ad Wammes.
