Would you like to be transferred to the world of the biblical story by the sounds of the pipe organ, the story about countless number of people all clad in white, holding palm branches in their hands and giving praise to God and the Lamb?
For the first time in Lithuania, this Saturday at Vilnius University St. John's church I will improvise a recital "The Triumph of the Elect."
In the program - musical story based on the fragment from the 7th chapter of the Book of Revelation.
Here's the text (taken from Bible Gateway):
9 After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robesand were holding palm branches in their hands. 10 And they cried out in a loud voice:
These images will the a perfect source for organ improvisations. During the concert my listeners will have a text in front of them, and I will be creating here and now an hour-long tone poem with musical means which will help the lovers of organ music to travel in their minds to this fantastic world of visions.
