In this latest blog post James Alexander, the stage director responsible for the physical presentation of the four Stokowski Celebration concerts in June, shares what he saw in his mind’s eye when he listened to Stokowski’s landmark orchestral arrangement of Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D minor, the composer’s most famous work in the organ repertoire.
James then goes on to enlighten us as to what happens to his “napkin sketches” once he shares them with his creative special effects team at Symphony V.0.
Tune in and hear what happens to the famous Bach window in Leipzig’s St. Thomas Church and the other fantastical imagery that you, the audience, will be immersed in during the Stokowski Celebration.
