About the Event

Our Lunchtime Pipe Organ series returns in September with a program of French Baroque French Baroque music.

Keyboardist Liz Durette will perfom a program of works by Francois Couperin, from his unmeasured preludes, masses, and Pièces de clavecin on our historic Estey organ. 

Liz Durette is an artist and musician based in Baltimore, MD. Her new album of Rhodes improvisations, titled Four Improvisations, is out on vinyl now.  She will perform a concert of her own compositions on the evening of Thursday, September 8th: Elegy for Harold Budd + Original Pipe Organ Music by Liz Durette.

Critical acclaim:

“Liz Durette, a Rhodes player from Baltimore, is the musician who today most embodies the bold possibility of the instrument. She plays solo, and her recent album Four Improvisations is lovely, devoid of anything other than pure worship of what the instrument can do.” -Matthew Schnipper, Pitchfork

“. . . listening to Durette feels like watching an unending spool unravel; her music feels prolific not because it’s concerned so much with making a concise, universal statement, but because it turns over each stone in its way and defines each surface. You get the impression Durette is continually composing, always reconfiguring an endless stream. And Durette’s tender mindfulness to the keyboard’s touch-sensitivity has become a fluid backbone to her pieces; the pressure applied to keys and the flux dynamics behind the notes feel like another composition within itself, superimposed over the tones.” -Ian Forsythe, Boston Hassle
