The Organ At The Grand Lodge
Format: COMPACT DISC
This release features Simon Nieminski playing music with connections to Freemasonry and Masonic composers upon the Brindley & Foster pipe organ in Freemasons' Hall, Edinburgh, Scotland. Simon Nieminski was born in London and descended from an unlikely mixture of Edwardian Japanese acrobats, Lancastrian Music Hall artists and a Polish army veteran. He studied in London at the Royal College of Music, at Cambridge University and as Organ Scholar of York Minster. His work as an organist takes him around the UK and abroad, both in concert and over the airwaves. As a recitalist, his programmes often include unusual but attractive repertoire, and it has become his aim to play programmes which appeal to organ buffs and sceptics alike. His recordings have helped to revive the music of unjustly neglected composers.
