TWU organist schedules Oct. 10 recital


DENTON — Dr. Thomas K. Brown, Texas Woman’s University professor of music and university organist, will add a little something extra to his next recital, giving the audience an up-close look at his performance.

The recital, scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 10, will be enhanced by the projection of the four organ keyboards on a large screen. The concert will take place in the Margo Jones Performance Hall, located at Pioneer Circle and Oakland Street on TWU’s Denton campus. Admission is free. For more information, call (940) 898-2500.

Dr. Brown traditionally performs compositions exhibiting a wide range of styles, time periods and nationalities. “Although this program leans heavily on German composers, there is great contrast in their musical language,” he said. “I believe this may be one of the most ‘audience friendly’ programs I have played recently.”

The program also will include “The Prelude and Fugue in D Major,” often called the “Hallelujah Prelude,” by Franz Schmidt and “Fantasia in G Minor” by Georg Telemann.

“I don’t often play many organ transcriptions in my recitals, but they seem to be very popular now,” Dr. Brown said. “‘Nimrod,’ from the Enigma Variations for orchestra by Edward Elgar, is so beautiful that I decided to include it this year.”
