Loreto Aramendi : The Virtuoso Organist Returns

Tickets available for purchase at the door or on Eventbrite.ca

Internationally-renowned Spanish musician Loreto Aramendi organist of the Basílica de Santa María del Coro de San Sebastián brings to Vancouver the music of her favourite composers. She has given many recitals in Europe Argentina Japan Russia and the United States and her extraordinary skill and musicianship have been highly praised.

Playing and interpretation of a very high standard

thanks to the performer’s stunning technique'  – David Baker

'A fine example of absolute musicianship sound

technique and utter command over the instrument' – Sydney Organ Journal

'Thrilled by her genius …

She has a unique gift that is very rare' – JAV Records

What sets Loreto Aramendi's concerts apart are the symphonic transcriptions of works by Liszt Fauré Rachmaninoff and Saint-Saëns. These transcriptions are not simplified arrangements but concert versions of great orchestral works which push both the instrument and player to the limit. As such they show off the rich tonal colours of the organ necessary for interpreting orchestral music which are otherwise unheard in strict organ repertoire. As well the organ transcriptions require a musician of exceptional virtuosic and artistic skill – and that Loreto Aramendi has in spades.

Loreto performed at St James' last year to a full house and a very appreciative audience and we are very pleased to welcome her back for what promises to be another memorable concert. A rare opportunity to hear this extraordinarily-talented musician perform on the mighty pipe organ at St James’ Church this is a concert not to be missed !
