Mole, Amanda

First Prize winner of the prestigious Eighth International Organ Competition Musashino-Tokyo, Amanda Mole has selected music that fully exploits every aspect of the excellent Marcussen & Son instrument at this venue. Buxtehude’s remarkable Praeludium and Bruhns’ chorale fantasia on the Advent tune ‘Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland’ connect with the old French traditions evoked in Alain’s ‘Variations,’ while Reger uses the entire dynamic range of the organ in his Toccata. The programme is topped by Messiaen’s expression of sheer joy in the rapturous conclusion to ‘La Nativite du Seigneur.’ Amanda Mole is the winner numerous awards. Since 2017, she has served as a juror for several organ competitions, and in 2016 was chosen as one of The Diapason magazine’s ‘Top 20 under 30.’
