Hear Clifton Cathedral’s iconic Rieger organ in a programme of classical and baroque repertoire with festival favourite James Gough. This celebration of Bach and the composers he influenced is sure to provide something for organ aficionados and newcomers alike.

At the heart of the programme is Bach’s explosive Toccata, Adagio and Fugue in C, which beautifully shows off the gorgeous colours of the Cathedral’s organ and our recitalist’s extraordinary virtuosity.
