Peter Hurford and The Organ at Sydney Opera House

March 8, 2019

On Sunday 3 March 2019, the music world lost the British organist Peter Hurford, who died at the age of 88. Hurford’s death is unfortunately timed with this month’s Eloquence re-issue of his splendid recital at the Sydney Opera House in 1982. Writing the following year, Gramophone wrote “This is the sort of programme with which organs are baptized … There is a springiness in the playing which comes up fresh every time … All very good value.”
