David’s Higgs is Professor of Organ at the Eastman School of Music, and widely admired for both his extraordinary technique, but his ability to communicate to audiences.  This unusual program at The Riverside Church includes rarely played works by jazz pianist, George Shearing, David Conte, Alain and William Bolcom, but is anchored by barn-burning favorites by Mendelssohn, and Franck, concluding with a thrilling performance of the Duruflé Suite.
 

“…this disc reveals an artist whose seemingly unlimited facility is well upstaged by a delight in organ sonority and musical line. Never once does Higgs fail in finding just the right sound, moulding it with care, affection, sincerity, and intelligence.”
