Preview: Jon Gillock Plays Messiaen Tonight at Church of the Ascension

Jon-GillockTonight at 8:00 p.m., the celebrated organist Jon Gillock continues his cycle of Messiaen's complete organ music at the Church of the Ascension, with two of Messiaen's early masterpieces: Le Banquet Célèste and La Nativité du Seigneur. Gillock, who played Messiaen's Livre du Saint Sacrament at Ascension last year, enjoyed a close personal relationship with the composer, and can rightfully claim to be among the world's leading interpreters of his organ music. Gillock will be performing on Ascension's acclaimed Quoirin organ, the first French-built pipe organ ever installed in NYC. If you haven't heard these works before—or even if you have—be prepared to have your mind blown.

Tickets will be available at the door or online at the Voices of Ascension website.
