Pictures at an Exhibition: The Ruffatti Organ of Buckfast Abbey

Martin Baker plays works selected from his inaugural concert on the acclaimed new organ of Buckfast Abbey. This magnificent instrument – the largest in the South West of England – was the first built in the United Kingdom by the renowned Italian organ builder Fratelli Ruffatti. Martin’s programme opens with music by Dom Sebastian Wolff, the Abbey’s long-serving monk, composer and organist. Other works explore each nuance and tonal variety of this innovative instrument, located in both the Quire and West Gallery of the Abbey Church. The recital culminates in Martin’s own organ transcription of Mussorgsky’s evocative Pictures at an Exhibition.
