Professor Ian Tracey – Organ Recital
Professor Ian Tracey is one of Britain’s best known and most widely respected musicians, having been organist at the monumental Anglican Cathedral in his home town of Liverpool for over 30 years. His performances there on the famous ‘Willis’ organ – the largest in the UK – have thrilled the instrument’s thousands of fans around the world and met with praise from the critics. He holds several other official positions and combines them with a busy freelance career as a recitalist and conductor.
When Ian was appointed Organist of Liverpool Cathedral in 1980, he was the youngest cathedral organist in Britain. After 27 years of service, the Cathedral’s Dean & Chapter created the post of ‘Organist Titulaire’, which allows him freedom to devote more time to playing, lecturing, recording, and writing. Ian has played at most of the major venues in this country and at an increasing number in Europe. He is very much in demand in the USA – where he has made 23 extensive tours, playing in all of the major cities. During 1999 and 2003, he undertook tours of Southern Australia which saw him playing recitals, examining and teaching. Recent seasons have included concerts in New York, Seattle, San Francisco, Bermuda, Paris, Holland, Germany, Jersey and Spain.
Dawlish is extremely fortunate to have Professor Tracey coming to St. Gregory’s. It promises to be a very special evening. Come and hear the organ as you have never heard it played before.
