I was an organ recital virgin until 7:30 yesterday evening. We had a fair number of friends who played the organ in college, but I never went to a recital. Yesterday I went to Kurt Knecht‘s recital at Nebraska Wesleyan. There was a pretty good crowd there, from which I assumed Kurt has a lot of friends. There were also a fair number of people in attendance from The City of Lincoln Lutheran Choir. Kurt is our accompanist, and his recital happened to coincide with Lauren having something or other to do.
One of the pieces that Kurt played was a Sonata that he wrote. Here’s the Spinning toward Euphoria movement of Kurt Knecht’s Sursum Sonata
I also learned something at this recital. I now know that I like the third movement of organ pieces the best. It was a good recital. I would definitely recommend it.
