 John Weaver Soloist


John Weaver, one of the America’s finest concert organists, was Director of Music at Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church in New York City from 1970-2005. He was Head of the Organ Department at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia from 1972 to 2003, and also Chair of the Organ Department at The Juilliard School from 1987 to 2004. Here he plays a varied program, including some rarely heard works by Leighton and Bingham. His program concludes with his own Fantasia for Organ.
 

"He has a breathtaking command of his instrument, innate musicality, an ability to hold an audience in the palm of his hand and a striking appearance at the console." -The

Diapason
 


"John Weaver Performs Dupré, Bach, Leighton, Bingham, Schubert-Weaver, Weaver "From start to finish the recital confirms Weaver’s polished skill....and Weaver emerges as a top-notch recitalist whose program shows off the versatility and broad resources of this instrument."

American Record Guide
 


"He plays everything as though to its manner born, as though he had the inside track to each composer’s individuality and had no need to work his way over the barriers or through the channels of stylistic attitudes that serve lesser men ..."

The American Organist


"....a performer whose technique, musicianship, stylistic acuity and taste make for interpretations of uncommon clarity, poise and good sense."

The New York Times


"No one should remain unacquainted with the great merit of a Weaver recital."

The American Organist


"Mr. Weaver’s playing was tasteful, balanced, technically assured and always engrossing."

The New York Times


"John Weaver’s virtuoso performance....played from memory....was hailed by many for its high professional standards. His recital was one of the few during the convention that brought nearly the whole house to its feet."

The Diapason


"Weaver rose to the works’ challenges with bold registrations and bravura. Yet his articulation was lean and calculated. Even in complex textures, the many layers emerged clearly, and the weight never become ponderous."
