This summer Robert will be returning to Germany for another extensive solo recital tour organised by Stefan Schwarz. Between the 3rd and the 15th of August he will be playing 10 recitals in Saxony, Brandenburg, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia. Venues include the famous Schlosskirche Wittenberg and Meißen Cathedral as well as churches in Döbeln, Dresden, Erfurt, Dessau, Weimar and Schwarzenberg. For a special one-off organ duo recital in Templin Robert will be joined by guest artist Joseph Bradley (Organ Scholar at Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin). Please see Robert's concert diary for detailed listings.
All evening recitals will feature proud rock/bright sky, a new work by award-winning composer Bertie Baigent that was specifically commissioned for this tour, and Max Reger's Variations and Fugue on 'God Save the King' or 'Heil dir im Siegerkranz', based on the tune of the English and the German national anthem (until 1918). Other tour repertoire includes works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Frank Martin, Herbert Howells, Olivier Messiaen, Simon Preston, Naji Hakim and Noel Rawsthorne.
