Bach Prelude and Fugue in D major, BWV 532

Prokofiev Excerpts from Cinderella

Thalben-Ball Variations on a Theme by Paganini

Laurin Three Short Studies, Op. 68

Vierne Final from Symphony No. 5, Op. 47

Niccolò Paganini was a prolific violinist, whose devilish virtuosity was unparalleled. His Caprice No. 24 in A minor for solo violin is a notoriously difficult piece to perform, and its theme has inspired many variations. Imagine playing the variations with only your feet, impossible you say? This incredible feat will be performed by Canadian professional organist Isabelle Demers, along with J.S. Bach’s intricate Prelude and Fugue in D major, excerpts from Demers’ own arrangement of Prokofiev’s ballet Cinderella which will transport you right to the doorsteps of the ballroom and Rachel Laurin’s Three Short Studies, Op. 68, culminating in a scintillating Finale from Louis Vierne’s Symphony No. 5.
