Basílica de Nuestro Señora de Zapopan (Basilica of Our Lady of Zapopan) in Guadalajara, Mexico
Bob Knight recently installed a 3-manual Rodgers Artist 599 in the Basílica de Nuestro Señora de Zapopan (Basilica of Our Lady of Zapopan) in Guadalajara, Mexico. Local renown organist, Felipe Adrián Rojero performed an Inauguraciön del örgano.
The following afternoon, Bob Knight and Bob Tall presented a Masterclass. Bob Knight began with a demonstration of the traditional organ sounds and how they are accessed through the features of this instrument. Then, Bob Tall demonstrated the more orchestral side of the MODERN ORGAN, playing music from the literature, Bach, Langlais, etc., then moving to transcriptions, mostly his own arrangements using instruments of the orchestra (Prague Symphony 2005) and voices from the London Master Chorale (1997).
Over thirty young musicians attended and their response to the presentation was awesome! We are grateful to these beautiful people, these very beautiful people, for their enthusiasm to study organ and embrace new concepts.
